With just 6 days to go until the Opening Ceremony of London 2012, things are really starting to heat up in and around east London. My office is just a few hundred yards up the road from the Excel Centre, where many Olympic events will take place, and I can see the Olympic stadium and the Dome from my office window.
The new cable car that crosses the Thames from north Greenwich to Custom House is now open, and being just 5 mins and 2 stops on the Docklands Light Railway from my office I took a ride in the week.
In Stratford itself Olympic fever is really starting to grip. I luckily have managed to get tickets for a few events and went to pick them up on Thursday evening from the ticket office.

Finally to wrap an exciting few days, Seb Coe, one time Olympic gold medalist and now Olympic Ambassador, paid a visit to our office building to meet some of the staff who will be working 24/7 during the games to help keep the area running i.e. bin collections, street cleansing etc
