Spectacular!

Did you see the massive amounts of fireworks shooting out of the Olympic Stadium in Beijing as the opening ceremony began to draw to a close? Wow!!! That was a spectacular sight!

What a way to build up to the lighting of the torch.

I didn't get to watch all of the opening ceremony, as I had a lecture scheduled tonight, but what I have seen has been a fantastic show.

It is going to be fun to watch the games over the next few weeks. The excitement all over China with this event is great. It is always fun to see the feats of the athletes who participate, but somehow this year it is really special to watch it taking place on Chinese soil for the first time.

I hope the following few weeks continue in the manner this opening ceremony has so far. It promises to be quite an event!
