We've been struggling with jet lag ever since we got back from the US. Staying up until 2am to watch the Olympic Opening Ceremony on Friday didn't help.
We are loving these London Games. Most definitely a home games for me, but which team to support has been the subject of hot debate in our household of British and USA passport holders. India is staying loyal to her one and only British nationality, Georgia roots for both countries and Savannah maintains she is 1000% American! If anyone bothered to ask her, Florence would probably say she wants to see a French winner. I've mentioned before about how being an ex-pat makes you ponder your national identity but there's nothing like watching an Olympic final, in any sport, to make it clear how you feel. Safe to say the stressful occupation that is being a British sports supporter remains mine, but there were two gold medals for Team GB today. Most impressively for Bradley Wiggins in the cycling Time Trial just two weeks after he became the first ever British man to win the Tour de France. Amazing! Inspiring? I should really get off the sofa and find where I left my bike!
This is one of the most famous views of Paris. Hardly undiscovered, but the gardens either side of the famous view and fountains contain some hidden charms which we had never explored before.
Keith's Mum is visiting this week so we have been out an about checking more and more off our bucket list. Will share more of that soon. Just as soon as I've seen what happens in the Graeco Roman Wrestling!
