London 2012, Only A Dream

Jump to last reply

Discouraged by others and since I am no “Rockstar”, I cancel my plans to visit London for the 2012 Olympics. Had I done months of planning and research or purchased a guidebook, I would have known it would have been impossible to go to the Olympics on short notice and get tickets to Olympics events like Men's Volleyball Quarter Finals.

I would have really been in a pickle had I visited London without advance planning. Anyway, I have been told that walking the Thames at night is awful something only tourist do. It is mundane to take pictures of the lighted bridges and buildings which I gather are very ugly. Furthermore, I have been told the London Bridge is in Arizona not in London so I save a lot of money not flying to London to see the London Bridge.

I am sure glad I did not go to London as I am sure I would have been disappointed and not enjoyed myself. Although London has what I consider some neat and sad history, I am told it would be immoral to walk in the footsteps of tragedy. I sure I glad I did not go because I probably would have liked to do a “Jack The Ripper” walking talk but then I would have been considered a bigot.

I guess I can look forward to Rio 2016 and do lots of research and planning so maybe I won't get myself in a pickle and maybe I can see some equestrian events there. I sure hope no tragedies have occurred in Brazil or they erase them all before 2016. I would really like to visit Brazil but don't want to do anything immoral or be called a bigot.
