Day 43 – Open Ceremonies

12 02 2010

I have been blessed to be able to attend 3 Olympic Opening Ceremonies – Atlanta, Sydney and Salt Lake City. They are incredible! Tonight I watched it on TV and had to do everything possible to stay awake… This week has worn. me. out.

Vancouver, Canada represented their company beautifully. There was singing by Celine Dion, Tap dancing with fiddlers, and amazing scenery changes – they even figured out a way to make it look like huge Orca were swimming across the stadium. But I fell asleep before the torch was lit! Argh… wonder what else I missed?

The Olympics are actually starting on a sad note this year as a Georgian Luger died today during training. To make it even worse, the video of his accident is posted online. How horribly sad for his family, country and all Olympians.

I wish all Olympians and my friends working the events all the best! Let the games begin!
