Thursday 18 June: Waterloo, Swedish Maypole dances & Inferno
That morning still ebing a bit under the weather but glad the worst happen whilst still in hotel we joined everyone else at Waterloo. I only ever saw the allied camp but gosh that was big...i guess 5000 re-enactors is quite a sight...for once they even had a good number of portaloos shame no running water in or near them and walk all around the wall.
We had a wonderful view of the Lion Mount, the day was spent with drills, wandering , meeting one horrible politician, joining the swedish army for some maypole dancing then going to Inferno
To open the Waterloo Bicenterany there was a big explosive show of light , sound and fireworks. We were on the side and quite far so didn't quite see all the small details happening on stage (especially hearing it all from simon who was holding one of the flag on stage), but despite that and all the problems getting in and incidents it was quite something to see, especially loved the inflatable horses, the lion head and quite a firework show.
meeting from australia
the more fancy tents
how to all the politician we had to bump into it had to be him :(
receiving our 44th medal
the best thing of the event for me was the swedish midsumer dance around the maypole...not being able to celebarte the solstice with the fairies this helped a bit :)
