Original post made on Apr 23, 2012

It may be tough for Palo Alto High student Lily Zhang to return to her normal class schedule for the remainder of the school year. She just might have other things on her mind. Like, for instance, competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

That's great, but can she beat Leland Levy?

Congratulations to Lily!!! However, the last place I'd want to be this Summer is London. What with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations to be followed by the Olympic Games; London is going to be very overcrowded and very expensive.

Also, the location of the Olympic venues is hard to get to. If you plan to go, don't rent a car, you'll never find anywhere to park. Just rely on the "Underground", or the new cable car across the River Thames. At least they speak English if you get lost!!!!
