This is James. We met yesterday evening at St Pancras station. Our conversation was brief as his train was due before mine, and the passenger assistance employee came to meet him to help him board.
Like me, he’d been at the Paralympics, attending the swimming events in the Aquatics Centre. There wasn’t much time to say more than we had both really enjoyed it, take this picture and give him this blog address. He’s going to far more events than I am, so I am hoping he’ll stop by and give some comments about how it goes.
I never did find out who the two Mandeville mascots were for, but they were the reason I spoke to James in the first place. He was pretty hard to miss!
Maybe you could tell us that as well, James. Hope you got home safely.
