Everyone else headed out at 8:00 am but I stayed around until 2:00 so the professor and I took a tour of the Olympic stadium tower and a few other sites and then I headed out to the airport. I caught all my flights and now I am in London at the airport getting ready to go see some friends.
We made it back to our hostel which was part of the Olympic stadium where they were playing the sold out soccer match of Finland versus Serbia. It was awesome to be able to walk outside your hostel into a hoard of crazy soccer fans all ready to watch their national team. We grabbed some beers and joined in the fun. We had some great seats and set by all Finland fans. It was a great game and we enjoyed our first major international soccer match. We even had one of the Finnish guys next to us take off his shirt and try to make it onto the field, only to get completely knocked the heck out by one of the millions security guys they had around the field. We got a great photo of him about half way to the field flipping of the security and then of one of him getting taken down. Finland lost but still enjoyable. We took it easy that night as everyone was headed out the next day. We chatted for a while as it was still like out at midnight and then headed to bed.
