Random and hectic it certainly was, but the atmosphere around the whole Olympic park was fantastic.
It was a very warm day when I went, and people seemed happy, they interacted and communicated in a way that's not seen often enough.
It reminded me of a day in Bristol, a few years ago, when overnight and through the morning, it'd snowed and snowed. As a result, Bristol ground to a halt as transport struggled and people couldn't get to work. Typically, school boilers failed and so everyone went and played in the snow! There were snowmen and snow-women everywhere!
Sledges were improvised from bags, benches and beds, and on the whole the City had a really fun day off work!
It's always nice to feel the warmth of human spirit, and the entire Olympic and Paralympic games have had it in bucket loads.
I hope some of you got to see some it!
