Yesterday, the Olympic Torch made it's way through Aberdeen and we were front and center for all the action. My friend, Kristin, lives a block off Union (the main street through Aberdeen) so we had a little pre-party with fajitas and all the fixings.
The torch relay began on May 19th in Land's End, England and has made it's way through parts of England, Wales, Ireland, and now Scotland. The torch ends in London at the opening ceremonies on July 27th. It was a pretty awesome event to say I've been apart of. (I can almost remember my grandmother talking of the torch running right in front of her house when the Olympics were held in Atlanta in '96.)
There was a lot of build up to the torch; buses, police, another bus, police, another bus and finally the torch bearer came through! He was gone in an instant and it was over just like that but still cool to say I was there!
