The list goes on.
- I saw the Olympic torch relay come through Hall Green in July. That was a special moment. I’m not just saying that. It felt good to have a world and historic event pass through your ‘hood. Was really proud to see it. I have no idea who was carrying the torch. I felt I deserved to.
- A few days before that, Pam’s twin sister Dennisse came to stay for a weekend. Dennisse lives in Barcelona. She got to try cider, went to see Bournville, Stratford, what Sunday roasts were all about and Kerrang radio station, as she likes rock music. She also went to the Old Joint Stock, which has featured in previous updates.
- Last Wednesday, my father, my brother and myself became true Catrachos and got involved in the Olympic spirit and went to see them play Japan at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Even though the game finished 0-0, it was a great day and the Japanese fans were crazy. There weren’t many Catrachos there, apart from the Birmingham Honduras Supporters Club, which contains Dad, Ben and me, but I did meet a Catracho who came to the UK with ICYE – the same charity that I went to Honduras with in the first place. Loved it. And thanks to Pam who sent over the shirts.
