English July

i have always believed that it all balances out, sometimes in the end, sometimes much before that..and it applies to evrything, from the micro level of a person's life - his career, personal life etc to the macro level - in terms of cities, states, nations, politics and everything else big and small that we see around us, and then, even further to the things that we may not even be seeing or understanding... and last week actually reinforced the idea a bit more....
If there has to be one place that can be termed as the most 'happening' these days, it has to be Great Britain. First it was tennis. In all the Grand Slams, if i had to choose the one i enjoyed most, it has to be Wimbledon.. it must be the grass, and the sheer power and excitement that it generates.. yes, it is only the surface we were discussing.. and if one would have thought that nothing could match this excitement, London got the news that it had to set the stage for the Olympics 2012. Considering that it happens only once every four years, and is undoubtedly the best place to showcase athletic ability, that, old boy, could turn out to be a much more exciting ballgame!!
And just in case one thought that at least the weekend would be uneventful, Silverstone had the scene set for the British Grand Prix - Alonso, Raikkonen, Schumacher....exciting would be an understatement.
And with all this happening, London had a blast, literally, and unfortunately, quite a few of them....
Until next time, i guess it isnt just the English weather thats unpredictable....

Yea well, but wish it couldve been 'happening' for a happier reason...

Nupur said...

u'd think... if only the blast had happened 24 hours earlier - London would not have been chosen as the next Olympics destination over Paris! :O

England did see everything in that week. They had Live 8 concert too. Unfortunately the blasts in a way overshadowed all of it.

phatichar said...

Yeah, Britain, come to think of it, was shielded from terror attacks all these years, and now there's a chink in it's aristocratic wall. Well...

manuscrypts said...

deez: lol :)

gabby: not at all.. if u r having a nice time, without causing anguish to anyone else, i believe it will be okay...
