MayorsOfficeLondon video: A new £50m cable car system -aka Emirates Air Line- linking the Excel Centre at Royal Victoria Docks across the Thames to the O2 Arena in north Greenwich in five minutes, and with an amazing view. http://youtu.be/PLAz1lM0zgs
You don't have to be a genius to know in advance that whatever else happens the first week, this cable car ride with its great views is going to be one of the early breakout hits of the Olympics, with every TV cameraman from around the world in London taking at least two trips across with one of their correspondents showing the folks back home the view from mid-air, to say nothing of the visitors and athletes themselves who will cross with their own video-cams in tow, and why not?
But the queues will be long!!!
I expect that within a month from today, there will easily be at least 500 videos of the entire Thames crossing on YouTube.
And lest you forget, that's Greenwich as in Greenwich Mean Time -GMT- though during the summer up 'til late October, London is actually on BST, British Summer Time, where the living is easy.
In any case, where time begins on this blue planet.
