Olympic Torch Relay

The Olympic Torch made its visit to Edinburgh last week. I was very eager to go and watch it but was down with fever and cold. My parents and son though did witness it and they tell me it was great fun to watch all the excitement.

It passed through our area at around 6:30 pm and the area was crowded and everyone was cheering. Kiddo came home and promptly got to work – he scrolled up a long sheet of paper and called it “holympi” and was running around the house “like the uncle who was running on the street”
