Today was my first day at the Olympic center and boy is it a site to see. Unlike China, most of the sport venues are located inside the park. There are pros and cons to this. Pro; if we are going to be there all day waiting for matches that are at opposite times of the day then we can just walk to see another sport. We couldn’t do that 4 years ago, we saw tennis and only tennis. Con; the park is ginormous, it is a 20-30 minute walk from the main entrance to Eton Manor. (tennis venue) This is a whole different experience with a squirmy toddler. It takes us 30 minutes to get from our front door to the front entrance of the park and then another 30 minutes to the tennis courts. Expecting Kaili to sit and watch tennis after that is probably not going to happen. My mom was kind enough to take turns swapping places with me so I could cheer on David. I am getting worried about how this will work as the days go on and the crowds get bigger, these Brits don’t mess around!
David was third on after 11:00 am. That is how it works. You are never sure of the time they will play so you just have to guess and make sure you get there early. He played a guy from South Africa ranked 7th in the world. He won!
Kaili had fun people watching and playing on the grass. She spent a good amount of time chillling in her stroller watching some tennis but the nap didn’t happen until our way home.This is definitely a different experience with a toddler, as easy going as she is.
