We Toured 2012 Olympic Park Today

This is the Stratford Station - it will be the international gateway to the olympics.

This is olympic stadium - it will hold 80,000. It will be disassembled after the games.

This is the swimming pavilion.

This will be a 500 foot observation tower and restaurant when done - about half the height of the Eiffel Tower.

This will be playing fields and housing. Note downtown London about 4 miles in background. This is on the east side of town.

This is a picture of a picture of the stadium being built.

It is 4:30 PM here.

We toured olympic park this morning. They are busy getting ready for this time next year. They took a slum section of London - condemned it - and leveled it. They are harping ecology - but frankly - I do not see much conservation.
