I preferred the Olympics, meself.

    Do you get to drive the diggers? If so, that does sound like fun…!

  2. Cath Ennis says:

    I don’t think so. You get to “climb aboard actual Landfill equipment”, but there’s no mention of actually driving it, unfortunately.
    “watch the bird control hawks and falcons in action” does sound reasonably interesting – but I can watch eagle vs. crow dogfights from my house (sometimes), without all that garbage smell!

    ..but Cath, maybe you get to see how deep it really is? I mean, if they have a slice through kind of (I don’t know how to explain it 😉 )
    but yeah, all those interesting facts but I don’t know about that being “fun” per se 🙂

  4. Matt Brown says:

    Ha, fantastic. Well, it certainly matches my idea of fun. I love finding out how the stuff we take for granted works. Hence, why I was wading thigh-deep through London’s main sewer a couple of weeks ago

    Second Stephen’s comment.
    One of the reasons my two children enjoy visits to their maternal grandparents’ Bavarian farm is that they get to ride on the back of the big tractors with their grandad and uncle. My other half tells me that growing up on a farm she learnt to drive a tractor aged eleven (!), but sadly she is not qualified on the newer ones they have on the farm these days.

    It’s says its free and fun-filled, now how could you pass that up?! I’m sure after a few minutes you won’t even notice the smell anymore 🙂

  7. Cath Ennis says:

    Åsa, I don’t know, and I’m afraid I’m not interested enough to go and find out (BAD blogger!)
    Matt, far be it from me to condemn your lifestyle choices, but next time I come to London I think I’d rather just go for a beer 🙂
    Austin, maybe if enough people demand it they’ll let someone drive the digger. But please see my reply to Åsa.
    Elizabeth, um, sure!
    At least they said “free, fun-filled event”. I once heard a TV advert for what was undoubtedly supposed to be a “fun, free event for the whole family”. Unfortunately the announcer didn’t really pause long enough for me to register the comma, and I decided to pass on the fun-free event…

    Cath> srly? Bad blogger indeed 😉
    Joke aside, I can totally see other important things to do for fun on the weekend. Hum, let me think… something about biking comes to mind… 😀
    Fun-free sounds like the signes with “Smoke free” and “Smoke-free” … all very confusing anyway. Happy weekend!
