Our First Day in London!

We arrived in London a bit sleepy still after the overnight sleeper train ride. On our way to the hotel, Matt pointed out the site of the 2012 Olympic games! The tents/arenas were huge! After dropping off our bags at the hotel, we ventured to Lee Valley Regional Park where we would complete our community service. We were asked to help remove weeds and unwanted shrubbery from the park. They will be clearing it out and use the space for ticketing for the 2012 water reafting events. Following the Olympic games, they plan to preserve the area as a grassland. It was truly inspiring to see all of us come together to help London prepare for the Olympic games!
