The Olympic Torch
Wednesday, 13 June 2012
This Olympic torch is making it's way around the country just now. Earlier this morning it passed by the front gate of the University of Stirling (incidentally, where I work). We headed down to catch a glimpse of it. There are some photos below.
I have to say that for a minute there I got all patriotic. That soon disappeared when the corporate sponsored Olympic floats came into view. All Coca Cola, Samsung and Bank of Scotland. Pah.
There weren't any 'famous' people carrying the torch around these parts but it must've been great for the young girl who ran past us. Something she can tell people for the rest of her life. Pretty cool.
