Yesterday, we had an adventure. I left my flat around two in the afternoon and headed to Earl’s Court Tube station.
The better half was still at work, so I stopped at the Blackfriar Pub to wait. I enjoyed a beer outside under a tree and read Bleak House by Charles Dickens.
Finally it was time to head to our destination!
We picked up our tickets. In order to avoid a long wait at the ticket window we arrived early, which meant now we had some time to kill. We stopped at the Parish Pub (review is here). After that we wandered to a different restaurant. As you can imagine, most of the pubs and restaurants near Wembley were packed. We had a cocktail outside and took in the craziness.
Time to head to our seats. The crowd was ready to enjoy.
If you haven’t guessed yet, we watched the Women’s Football final last night between Japan and the USA. A few days ago we noticed that they released more tickets to the event and we jumped on the chance.
I am sorry to report that we didn’t stay for the medal ceremony. The better half had an early appointment the next day.
This little guy needed his nightly medicine
And this one needed to go outside.
But no worries, the night was fantastic. We enjoyed the competition and the USA won 2-1. It was a wonderful experience. And I was really impressed by the crowd. In my section there were a lot of Americans. Of course they cheered for the American players. However, I was happy to see that they also supported the Japanese players. And when Japan scored, they all applauded. I love the Olympic spirit and how it brings so many together. Over 80,000 people attended the match at Wembley Stadium. It was awesome to be a part of it!
Please excuse the extra grey section at the end of the photos. I tried for at least two seconds to get rid of it. It was a frustrating two seconds. Does anyone know the trick to this that doesn’t involve messing with the code? When people mention that word, my eyes glaze over immediately. I think it might be a medical condition. I need to rest after even writing the word.
