The Olympic torch - travelling through the United Kingdom (pictures)
The Olympic torch, as it makes its way through the United Kingdom
I have posted many pictures on this site, because this is a very special event, the Olympics. It involves countries from all over the world. But perhaps, most importantly of all, it shows the people and places of the United Kingdom in incredible detail.
This is like a whole course of geography on Great Britain.
There are a lot of links here, but there are also a lot of pictures to look at, and I want to share those with others who have or haven't been thereI
This is a chance to get to know all of the United Kingdom in a very special way. Click on each link to see the full photographs for that day.
