I'm watching the countdown to the opening ceremony, safely at home on TV - was in London earlier and am really glad I don't live there, as it was utter bedlam on the transport system, which wasn't helped by hearing the dulcet tones of Boris Johnson every ten minutes, asking me to plan my journey carefully. Senyar, is it going to affect you badly?
