Closing Ceremony 2012 One World

One cannot underestimate the power of sport.
Today was for me a little window on utopia that was the closing ceremony of the Olympics. All creeds, all colours, people from all corners of the world together in celebration. A feeling of real optimism washed all over me and at times my hair was on end.

How can we capture this atmosphere and bottle it ?

More importantly how can we capitalize on this pure feeling of goodwill to all and help heal the very real and very deep wounds that exist in our society.

In a time of global strife, this event, if only for a few hours, gave substance and meaning to the word hope :)

Thank You London. Thank You World :)

Peace and Love

The gym

Managed to get to the gym after a few days today. Did 4 KM on the treadmill in 30 mins. A big achievement for me.

The hotel I am staying at in Doha does not seem to be very busy. In fact so not busy that for the 2 hours I was in the gym/spa area not one person showed up. So I had the gym, Jacuzzi, Steam room and changing rooms all to myself the whole time! Cool :)

Peace and Love
