I FEEL privileged to be in London for the Olympic Games knowing I’m not a tourist — I live here now, so it’s almost like having this huge event come home. Suddenly, the first few participants of the relay were visible and the crowds began to applaud and cheer. And there it was — the torch — which had travelled hundreds and thousands of miles and was finally here. It was a wonderful moment to see people of different backgrounds come together for the experience. If this was the excitement and atmosphere at the relay, I can only imagine what it will be like inside the Olympic Park.
