wembley week (1)
Right. Chelsea got the FA Cup. I am sure there were big celebrations going on up at Wembley and down at Stamford Bridge but I decided to not go this year and just go next year.
More importantly this was the official opening of the new Wembley. And I think that's well worth a week of Wembley only. I already posted two (one, two) pictures taken at the construction site in March 2005 (that shows how long I am already in London, time to move on really...) but back then I was one of the people who didn't believe it would ever finish. For the week starting today I will dig out a few pictures of the construction site and will cycle out there today to snap a few shots of what it looks like since it's finished. At least the cranes should be gone...
Today's picture is still from back then. I was fascinated about the stadium being basically in the back yard of some of the houses in Wembley. I am also fascinated by the ability of Wembley people to find their house when they come home from week because they look all the same.
