R&R at the Beijing Olympics
Continues to be an amazing Olympics games. Singapore won their semi-final match in the table tennis women's team event so they've secured a medal for Singapore - at least a silver. They'll be up against China who are the reigning champions but who knows - there may be a big upset on Sunday. Singapore may get it's first Gold medal at the Olympic games. Was there at the match - never was really into table tennis - but I must say it's a great spectator sport - got so riled up - was screaming for Singapore at the end.
Also got to see USA vs Greece in basketball - just amazing! The US team is on form and delivered an expected but still thrilling performance.Their precision, their teamwork and physical prowess is just stunning.
The men's gymnastics final was pretty awesome too - China won of course but the Japanese were pretty good too.
Had a bit of R&R out at Hou Hai (?spelling) which is one of the oldest parts of Beijing - now a historic site filled with bars, clubs and trinket shops. Still - it's set around a lake and it's a beautiful part of Beijing to chill.
Finally - we had such great weather the last two days that I simply had to include a few photos of the bird's nest, water cube and a tree lined street next to Peking University...
