‘The Love Yourself Project’ – in the house at the London 2012 Olympics – technical rehearsal/July 25th

Thanks to my sister, Jacqui Jones-Kimberlin, and my brother-in-law, Stanley Kimberlin, who work for the lighting company, Syncrolight, USA, we felt extremely privileged to get three tickets to see the full ‘Technical Rehearsal’ for the London 2012 Olympics, on Wednesday night. And, it was truly SPECTACULAR!! We took loads of photos and film footage but, as Danny Boyle, director of the Olympic Opening Ceremony, stressed on the night: “save the surprise” (i.e. please don’t twitter or share photos before the official opening this evening – Friday 27th July). So, we will save the surprise – and, we assure you, it will be worth the wait!

However, without giving too much away, we managed to get a little product placement in for one of our donors – ‘The Love Yourself Project’, based in New York – for our ‘River Gambia Expedition 2012‘. These little stickers will be coming all the way to West Africa with us too, where we’ll give them out to people we meet on our travels.
