B and I watched a good chunk of the Olympic Opening Ceremonies last night. It was amazing to watch as 82 countries came together.
Things that struck me:
1. Team Japan waving not only the Japanese flag, but the Canadian flag. A lovely tribute to the host!
2. Pakistan's one athlete. The fact that Pakistan is competing for the first time, right now, is pretty amazing. It shows that the Olympics is about so much more than sports.
3. The Georgian team. I wanted to cry for them.
4. The music. The music was really lovely.
We feel asleep when Nelly Furtado and Brian Adams hit the stage. (NOT the music I referenced above. I was referring to the actual score.) It's on the DVR, so we will watch the rest later.
What did you find interesting about last night's opening ceremonies?
