I was lucky enough to have a good friend offer me a spare ticket to the Paralympics on Wednesday. Especially because I made zero effort to get any tickets!
As you can well imagine, it was very inspirational watching the paralympians overcoming their conditions and excelling at sport, far better than I could!
We were extremely lucky with the weather, blue skies all day, not a cloud in sight. Which made the much debated sculpture by Anish Kapoor and Cecil Balmond look striking against the bright blue sky.
I was pretty excited to go to Zaha's aquatic centre, and grateful for the "wings" that were added on, as that's where I was sat! Very hard to get a good shot of the building because of them though, so will have to make a trip back to the park when the've been taken down.
