London Olympics 2012: Superyachts On The Thames via @zite
Indeed, these developments are a far cry from the image of East London as the hub of vagrants and cannabis smokers. Having said that, the Thames was historically used by the richest of the rich when they wanted to make a royal entrance. It was the ceremonial route for royals and other exceptionally wealthy folk as far back as the 17th century. We seem to have gone back in time once again, and many locals are excited about checking out the super-rich and their superyachts as their float on the London river. After all, the glitz and glamour is sure to make for several photo-worthy moments. In fact, sightseers probably should not miss checking out the many superyachts docking at London during the course of the 2012 Summer Olympics.
