CWG closed but not forgotten

The Commonwealth Games has been just an amazing experience. Just as Sydney would have felt after the Olympics in 2000, it proved what the city was capable of, if effort and enthusiasm is put in. There are so many lessons that can be learned, particuarly on public transport, which proved it could work effectively with increased crowds and people could be encouraged in taking the train rather than driving.

Well done to the organisers and volunteers, it certainly was a very friendly games. The atmosphere of the city during the past 11 days has been uplifting, very positive and made you very proud to live in this marvelous place.

Here is a photo I took from the mens road race on the final day (Sunday) going through King's Domain.
