Today I visited the Olympic Park. The park itself is huge, and incredibly spacious with loads of room to walk around, grassy areas to sit and watch the events on big screens, eating places, and of course the stadiums and arenas. We had a picnic, watched Tom Daley and the synchronized diving on the big screen, and then stood and watched them filming for NBC, where we met Ryan Seacrest and Bruce Jenner.
Sorry these photos are in black and white, but I had no make-up on (my parents were rushing to get me out the house this morning and I completely forgot until we were on the train and I freaked out before having a sulk :/)
The biggest and most exciting part of the day though, was meeting Andy Lee, from The Hamish and Andy Show. The Hamish and Andy show is an Australian radio show, and we used to listen to them everyday on the way home from school. 'Hame' and Andy are so unbelievably funny, and they have two CD's with their pranks and funniest moments on, and I always listen to them when I'm driving.
Anyway, so we were just walking by the Velodrome, when we saw three Aussie men, and one of which looked like Andy Lee. My brother, mum and I were standing there casually looking in their direction trying to work out if it was him or not, and couldn't decide, so we all closed our eyes and listened to his voice to see if it was the same as on the radio show - it was! We must have looked like complete idiots, and my Dad was a bit confused, but we were so excited so went up to him and started chatting to him. He was so nice! And he even introduced himself and asked what our names were and shook our hands before posing for a photo. He and his friends were in their way to see Australia play France in the basketball for Andy's birthday.
My brother was also in this photo, but he ruined it by having his eyes closed...so I cut him out.
We had a fantastic day at the Olympic Park, but if you want to go I think all of the Olympic day passes are sold out now :(
Oh, and we also saw the Prime Minister, David Cameron!
