Even though I work some late shifts at the medical centre in the Olympic village, we do get some break times, so I took these pictures of what one can even see happening around us as the excitement starts to rise, from a beautiful sunset with the British Flag flapping in a welcome breeze, to a circulating Airship up above (I assume it's TV crews). We have also been listening to and watching a further rehersal for the opening Ceremony at the Olympic Stadium across the way, with some fireworks and laser show action too as my shift finished and I watched this for some 30 mins before deciding I really need my sleep now :)
It's difficult to explain the combined tired and excited feelings and how surreal it is to just be stood in the middle of it all, inside looking out, so to speak.
