I was lucky to get three tickets for the athletics.
First step - on the train to the stadium on August 3rd.
One of the many Olympic volunteers
Railway stations were amazingly clean! Extra staff laid on to help you get on the right train.
First view of the Stadium
Another 'Purple Person' directing us which way to go.
Slow moving queue heading for the Olympic Park
Lots of Army chaps doing a fantastic job

Inside the Park!
The Police tended to look a bit fed-up!
Lunch at the biggest McDonalds in the World.
A stroke of genius to fill the place with wild flowers!
Just to prove I was there

This block of seats stayed empty the whole evening!
