The stone settees of "victory park" in the athletes village. Come games time, I will not be allowed back in here.
@markcoyle65 it's a great view from up there, I went over earlier. Check it out
Mr Boyle's handwritten letter, confirming the sparing of those lucky old opening ceremony goats, cows, ducks and sheep
Just seen Olympic Press Centre's "international newsstand." if just 1 of these titles is missing, there'll be trouble
Check out the amazing view of London's industrial east from the new cable car
Cable car roding Boris grinds past the world's press like Bush and Brown in a very slow golf buggy

It's like a little town. Here's the (visa only) official sponsored bank
Thar she blows. The Main Press Centre. Soon to be home to more than 10,000 professional moaners, myself included.
Ah, Stratford Station. East London's answer to the Hampton Court maze. Platform 3 anyone? Or 5? Or 9?
@pjclarkes - he's still there. I'm told your buffalo wings were very good though
