Olympic Torch Relay

Crowds starting to gather on our street

Sponsors' buses went by first to get the crowd going with loud music & megaphones
and fancy screens

The next torch bearer got off of this bus and stood by our driveway, waiting for the flame handover

The kiss point!
It was so great to have the Olympic Torch relay go right by our home!  We were excited when we heard it was coming to Headingley, and really surprised it was going down our street--but then when we ended up having a kiss point right on our driveway, it was unbelievable!
This morning the torch went downtown in Leeds, and I saw a guy on campus this afternoon with a torch, too.  So exciting!
