... that I needed to see.
And I have to admit, planning out how to get place to place on my own, and paying for it will my own money was extremely satisfying. From the second I got off the tube in downtown London I was fascinated. It was so big, and so beautiful, and everything was in English! Someone stopped me to tell me I had a beautiful smile and ask me what I was so happy about. He called me "Love" and "Darling" and I think I actually giggled. I was waiting for my ...

They are modifying the stadium to make it into an actual stadium where people can buy food, drinks and memorabilia. This process is going to take awhile and costs around 120 million pounds to transform the stadium to what it needs to be. I would be excited to see the final product in 2016 but that is a story for another ...
