LONDON: Olympic Torch


Minulé úterý, 31.7.2012, procházela olympijská pochodeň Ealingem. A protože to byla velká událost a hlavně se konala tři ulice od domu, kde bydlím, rozhodla jsem se, že se tam půjdu podívat. Je to jedna z věcí, které člověk chce vidět, i když ho třeba olympijské hry ani tolik extra nezajímají. Jde o tu atmosféru a zážitek :) málem jsem se tam ale ani nedostala, protože můj milý svěřenec odmítal jít ven a ani jeden z rodičů nebyl doma. Už jsem se s tím naštvaně smiřovala, ale nakonec jsem se ho ještě 10minut před ohlašovaným průchodem touto ulicí zeptala, jestli teda půjde, a on najednou souhlasil, tak jsme skoro běželi, abychom to viděli. Bylo tam vážně hodně lidí, ale stálo to za to. Oni si tu pochodeň různě předávali, takže na rohu stál člověk s nezapálenou pochodní, který ji měl pak zanést do Walpole parku, kde pak byla celovečerní akce a člověk na to musel mít vstupenky. Pochodeň kolem mě proběhla strašně rychle, že jsem ji zblízka nestihla vyfotit, ale vyfotila jsem si ji aspoň z dálky. Byla to velká událost :)

last Tuesday, 31st of July 2012, the olympic torch was coming to Ealing. And because that was a big event and the torch was coming through a street that was 300m from my house, I decided to go to see it. It's one of those things one has to see when it's easily accessible even if one isn't especially interested in the whole event. It's about the atmophere and experience. I almost didn't go there in the end because Christopher refused to go outside and none of the parents was at home. I was starting to be ok with that although I was still angry a bit but I asked him once more 10 minutes before the torch was passing that street and he said that he would actually go. So we almost run to get there on time and see it. There were so many people but it was worth it. The people were passing the fire one to another so one was waiting with a torch without a fire for another person to come with the fire :D and then the person went to Walpole park where was a big event because of it. But one had to have tickets to get there. The torch passed me really quickly so I didn't get to take a close picture of it but I have one of the crowd and the torch :) it was great to see the enthusiastic and happy crowd of people there :)
