Olympic Torch on April Road

Our neighbour called the other night to advise that the 2010 Games Olympic Torch would be starting at the foot of April Road. Sounds good. The run will begin at 6:33 am. Not so good.

My wife convinced me to walk to the foot of our street and join the surprisingly large crowd that had collected on this cold, rainy morning and watch someone in a questionable jumpsuit run down the road with an over-sized Bic lighter. Sounds like real hoot, right? Actually, I have to admit that seeing so many people at the foot of my usually very quiet street so early in the morning was worth the trip and I’m glad I brought along my video camera.

Below is video of the main event including the lighting of the torch and below that, the flame arrives at city hall.
