If I didn’t before, I now know what it’s like to truly be a VIP. We made it London without a hitch. No sooner had we stepped off the plane in Heathrow and walked a couple blocks then we were getting our Olympic accreditations. That pass was like a golden ticket. Every couple of steps, someone would ask us if we needed anything. We got a VIP line through customs (and so almost did the unknowing couple and their toddlers who were ahead of us when we reached the line, since the volunteers thought they were with us.) We were even told we could get free transport into the city and a cab would be waiting to take us to our lodging. We headed to Amsterdam instead. And since internet is scarce and my time is running out, I’ll wrap it up there. We’ll post more in a few hours.
