Fish and Chips

Many years ago this would be served in a sheet of old newspaper, and the only condiment would be malt vinegar.

Fish and chips, considered a national dish of the UK, hasn’t changed all that much (except it is now much dearer, even in relative terms), and with mushy peas, tartar sauce and the ubiquitous tomato ketchup, it makes one extremely filling, and farly nutritious meal.

Riverbank Arena 2, London Olympics 2012

Another view of that great match between Germany and Australia in the semi-final of the men’s hockey at the London Olympics 2012. And that is an airship in the skies.

It was a high quality game, Australia were twice ahead, but Germany’s teamwork and fitness eventually prevailed and they ended up 4-2 victors, and later went on to win gold, retaining the Olympic title.

The quality of the pitch was outstanding, enabling such skillful hockey, but the colours attracted much attention. it’s a shame that this arena is merely a temporary one, and that it is only being used for this Olympic hockey tournament before being dismantled.
