English My Lotters , are you ready for the Olympics?

They won't really affect me other than the cost and availability of flights. I'm not convinced that they'll be a good thing for local people. Any extra income made from Olympic tourists will almost certainly be spirited away by the large corporations running things rather than filtering down to the local communities who have to put up with the disruption and mess.

That is a shame. The locals Should be the ones who benefit from the increase in tourist traffic. And I assume many Want to see the Real London , not some made up version! I'm glad you can still get around. I have visions of roads being closed and rush hour being worse because of all the extra people taking the Underground and the buses. Hailing All the cabs!

I can't speak for the English, but my husband lived in Atlanta Georgia during the 1996 Olympics. He made sure to get out of town for the duration. While he thought the games would be good for the city, he was not interesed in being there in the crowd, with all the people, and all the hubbub.

Hello Sarah, unfortunately I can't go to UK and watch but probably watch TV and see who takes most of the gold there. i hope they make good use of the stadium even after the olympics. I wonder why china didn't use much of the stage after the olympics
