LONDON 2012!!!!!

We dropped in to London for the Olympic track and field events!!!!!!


OK, not really. The pic above was from yesterday at the University of Botswana stadium, host of the Lady Khama Charitable Trust Family Fun Day and Olympic-themed sports competition.

Several nations/groups were represented: The United Kingdom, European Union, Botswana, African Nations, China, and of course, the United States.

The Brits set up a tent, complete with banners, flags and several London 2012 Olympic posters! We (the American team) somehow didn't plan that far ahead ... so Nile and I shamelessly camped out in their shade and accepted their hospitality that extended to chocolate-chip banana bread and oranges.

Here is team USA (in red) with the event initiator himself, captain of the Botswana team, His Excellency Lieutenant General Seretse Khama Ian Khama, President of Botswana (in blue). He created the Lady Khama Charitable Trust in honor of his mother. Word has it he works out 2 hrs. a day. His team was a force!

It was a really fun day. In addition to the all-day sports competition for men's, women's, and youth teams, there was an area set up with food vendors, live musicians, a clown, face painting, and three different bouncy houses for the kids. Nile loved it!
