Here at Qype, we love nothing more than tucking into a delicious and (relatively) nutritious burrito and our friends at Tortilla
sure know how to make one hell of a good one!

Monday 21 May was a day to remember, as my twin sister and I were off to see her birthday present – Jay – Z and Kanye West’s – Watch The Throne Concert at the O2. For a past birthday present, I had bought her tickets to see Rihanna, since she’s a massive fan, but more for their shared passion for style. However, I had a feeling that I had surpassed myself since we both had high expectations about the evening ahead.
Once we left North Greenwich station, we were met with hoards of fans and surprisingly bumped into uni friends and past and present work mates, as well as knowing other people that were going on different dates. With such a hyped atmosphere, how much more amplified was it going to be inside?
At 8:30 pm, it was SHOWTIME! As soon as the music started booming and the rappers came to the stage, everybody stood to attention and danced the night away until the very end. To the fans’ delight, there were also cube shaped stages, that rose up high, whilst Kanye and Jay – Z alternated between them. As an extra bonus to where we were seated, we had a close view to the cubed platform to our right. Whenever they looked over, we made sure we waved our arms – too bad it didn’t catch their attention though.
The crowd had the privilege to hear songs from the Watch The Throne album, plus tunes from each of their solo collections. It was great to hear past songs that you hadn’t heard in a while, especially since some made you want to dance even harder and repeatedly made you say “Oh yeaaaah!” in a chorus of remembrance.
But it was a current song and arguably the anthem to their present album, that really got the crowd going. Saving the best until last, Kanye and Jay – Z performed N!**@s In Paris! We were lucky enough to hear it three times in a row before both said goodbye for the night. However 99% of fans felt that this couldn’t be the end. And we were proved right when both re – entered the stage and Jay – Z shouted “again”! That was meet with a loud cheer and everyone rapping to the chorus ‘That Sh*t Cr_ay’, as they performed the song twice more.
It’s funny how they abbreviated the word ‘crazy’ – but the phrase definitely has a ring to it. Once the concert finally finished, my sister and I could only explain the event as ‘That Sh*t Cr_ay!’

It’s not every day you get to meet a Triple Olympic gold medial winner but I managed to catch up with Britain’s most successful sailor ever – Ben Ainslie at Exchange Square Broadgate …swoon!
If you don’t know about Ben, you should. He won his first Olympic medal aged just 19 at the 1996 Atlanta games and has gone on to break world records, win numerous awards and has been honoured with a CBE, and that’s just for starters.
Moving onward to this year’s sailing at the 2012 Games, held in Weymouth and Portland, Ben’s not feeling the home advantage:
“I’ve done a lot of training in Portland harbour over the years, it’s a great sailing venue though all our competitors have been taking advantage of it, so my edge isn’t as big as you’d think – I’ll be watching out for Brazil and Australia especially – they’re two very strong nations.” After a day’s training at Portland, Ben likes to enjoy crab sandwiches and a cold drink at The Cove House Inn and The Crab House Cafe.
So what does an athlete at the top of his game enjoy doing with his time off? “Well I’m a very casual golfer, no handicap yet, but I’m lucky enough with all the travelling to have played some great courses, Wentworth in the UK and also Kauri Cliffs in New Zealand are two of my favourites”. He also like to spend time with his family when back home in Cornwall, “Hanging out with my parents in The Shipwrite Arms and also the Helford River Sailing Club is a very relaxing place to be.”
Being the well-travelled man that Ben is, what are his favourite places around the globe? “I love Australia, especially Sydney Harbor for the sailing, South America’s also extremely beautiful and I love Italy, they’re very passionate about sailing.“
But what about something for all the visitors heading to the UK to support their home teams? “The London Eye is a must to get a good view of the city, and Covent Garden is pretty magical, but if you’re looking to get away from the Capital, then the Jurassic Coast at Portland is great and obviously Cornwall.”
So apart from being a very attractive man Ben’s also genuinely very nice, though I didn’t get to touch his medals…Follow Ben this summer using #BenandRita
