Now the Olympic Games are in LONDON! A great place to do that, for sure – full of history, creativity, happy people – and poor ones too! Can’t forget the song of Ralph McTell “Streets Of London” – I’ll play it for you on my guitar below as a fingerstyle instrumental. A youtube video adds a photo slide show featuring the streets of London: with the great contrast between poor homeless and rich human beings. A friend recently said “They lost the DECENCY!” I have to ask: Who? The poor ones, the prostitutes following events like the Olympic games since hundred years? Or the egocentric rich ones escaping with their millions to obscure banks and countries, trying not pay any tax?
