Britain OLY John Leicester 240512

  In this Monday, May, 14, 2012 photo people shop at a market in east London. The east end of London has long had more than its share of foul luck; it was high time that changed; and the 2012 Olympic Games are helping do that, by focusing the world's eyes on what used to be a derelict, polluted patch of industrial land but which now is a shining advertisement for east London: the immaculate, landscaped Olympic Park with purpose-built sports venues which smell like a new car. So damn the expense. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
