Paralympians ~ passing through

They’ve enriched lives, mine anyway, and I’m going to miss them. Here are two female athletes I spotted at Stratford. The station is now named Stratford International and the place is nearly a world away from when we lived down the road there and used to go to Mothercare in the rundown shopping centre. Now it’s all Olympic Park and Westfield Shopping Centre. When I strayed momentarily into the latter last week, I pretty much shot straight back out again, so glitzy is the shopping set-up. Still, a railway siding is always a railway siding, no matter how much regeneration goes on. I quite like that.
