We’re stockpiling beer and pretzels for the opening ceremonies tomorrow (and feeling quite chuffed that they’re in our time zone), and I’ve been reading up on London’s preparations/dilemmas/scandals related to the Olympics. In the process, I ran across this wonderful video explaining the difference between London, and the City of London. Now, I took an entire course in English history back in my university days, and nobody told us about these little details. Here I thought William the Conqueror conquered everything. Turns out he just knew how to pick his battles.
Pay attention, it goes by quickly!
