An olympic party pooper
We got to the street, and there were so many people. But there were also lots of street sellers, selling hooter things, and blow up olympic torches, union jack flags, even helium balloons of cartoon characters (which resulted in a tantrum from Sophie as she couldn't understand why I wouldn't let her have one, as this was definitely not what we came here for!) I just couldn't help thinking of all these things being tossed aside as soon as the flame had gone past, never to be thought of again.
I'm certain that I wouldn't have gone if it hadn't have been for Ethan, and I hope he got something out of it, but I think I'll be steering clear of such things in the future.
