London was putting on their best for the world. Everything was lit up, there was a large public art display, and most people were exceptionally friendly. I really enjoyed walking along the river at night. There was some much happening, great places to eat, and brilliant sights. There were also dozens of the Olympic statues painted in different ways scattered about town. The mascot was ugly, but some artists did great work despite the handicap.

The flight from LHR to ORD on a United Airlines 767 was pleasant. We booked (yes, my friend still wanted to sit next to me after a week of travelling together) the second exit row on the plane and had plenty of space. Breakfast was a tasty waffle (adding a pound of sugar to it helped) and I settled in attempting to watch a movie and fall asleep. Neither activity went well. After a quick sandwich before landing, we were at O’Hare. My friend was heading into Chicago and we parted ways.
