Olympic Torch Relay – Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park

Well, I couldn’t resist.

My friend asked me to join her at the Olympic torch relay finale at Hyde Park yesterday, so I did. On the way to Hyde Park I stopped at Buckingham Palace to watch the torch pass by once more.

It was pretty busy. The sun made this a perfect experience.

Then the torch was handed over to the next torch bearer within the gates of Buckingham Palace. Prince William and Kate Middleton were there, too. I kind of got a glimpse, but it was so far away that I can’t really claim I saw them. But I was there! :)

We then headed over to Hyde Park for the torch relay finale concert. There was quite a big line-up. We only saw the last 2 bands. Fun atmosphere, but I am glad I am not planning on watching the Opening Ceremony there on the big screens.

Olympics starting today! YEAH!
