London from Above

Watching Great Cities at Night: Views from the International Space Station brought to mind how magnificent London will be tomorrow evening, from above or here on Earth. Mind you, London is always magnificent. Still it's sure to be a spectacle in the best sense of the word. Almost-confirmed rumors about the Olympic Games opening's inspiration include: Shakespeare (specifically, The Tempest), beloved characters from children's literature, Paul McCartney. Can't wait.
