Olympics

The 2012 London Olympics

by /

I have just returned from the Olympic Games in London. It was the fulfillment of a lifelong ambition. Prior to this, I had only been to the opening ceremony of the 1984 games in Los Angeles for client Fuji Film. This time around, I made it to events including volleyball and tennis. Here are a few of my observations from the trip.

Monument at Beaumont Hamel for Newfoundland regiment, Battle of the Somme

In Flanders Field

by /

When I went to the UK for business beginning in the early 80s, I stayed at the Hilton in Chelsea Harbor near our office on The King's Road. As I would go for a walk after work, I would pass elderly gents dressed in full red uniform with war decorations near the Chelsea Hospital for veterans. Then in the fall, I saw Brits sporting black paper circles with a red middle, to commemorate the losses in WWI. I made a promise to visit Flanders Fields when I had a chance. Today was the day.
