Day 92 – Olympic Park

Today, we visited the Olympic Park in London. What an impressive sight! We went with a friend who saw it during the Olympics and I have to say it sounds like an amazing experience.

I absolutely loved the architecture of the sports venues – especially the aquatic centre, which just shouts “water” from the way it is built. I’m a fan of meaningful architecture like that.

I was decidedly against Munich’s application for the Winter Olympics, but in this case it’s very clear that the Olympics have done London good. I hope that the park will be used for regular events in the future, it would be a shame if it just ended up a monument. There is so much potential in the buildings and the entire area.
