London Day 3

Today we went to see the 2012 Olympic Stadium. We were able to see the building that had already been built. The main stadium started being built in 2008 and was completed at the beginning of 2011. There are 9 million tickets available but 20 million people have applied to get tickets. Chilren tickets cost the amount of their age. After the Olympics are over, most of the buildings will be turned into housing and other places for the public to continue to use.

That afternoon, we went to a business lecture at Hult International Business School. We were spoken to by Ray Hilditch who is a professor from the school. He talked to us about the differences between the United States and the United Kingdom. In the United Kingdom 17 countires use the Euro and 10 other countires do not. In the United Kindgom they do not rely on the tv and the internet as much as we do in America. They still read the newspaper on a daily basis. London is a very fast paced form of living compared to the United States.

That evening we went and saw the play Wicked. It was a very enjoyable experience.
