Beijing Olympics

Hi All,

Ok - arrived in Beijing just prior to the opening night - and was amazed to find that we managed to get tickets to the opening ceremony! It was so awesome! The drumming, the lighting of the flame, that whole scroll thing. What can I say - I was impressed to bits and more.

There's still quite a bit of smog around but the last couple of days it rained so it cleared things up a bit. We even had blue skies over the last day or two. Beijing with blue skies is really quite a beautiful city - reminds me a little of NY but a little flatter and more spread out.

Haven't done many of the big sights yet - tried to get to the great wall - but it was closed till after the cycling I think. Must get back there again. And when things slow down - Tianenmen, Temple of Heaven etc etc.

Here's me at the opening ceremony - just to prove I was there:

And here is the water cube and bird's nest stadium by night:

Well, I actually have to work here so not getting that much R&R time - but whilst I'm working I have managed to catch some table tennis (saw the amazing Chinese team) and badminton so far. Looking forward to maybe the diving, basketball and hopefully some atheletics finals.
