Olympics opening ceremony

Beijing Olympics opening ceremony

Somewhere behind me, as I sit at my desk at work, I can hear a massive crowd cheer and applaud. Oriental sounding music echoes around the building.

“What is going on?” I think to myself as I try to forget the past 24 hours and look forward to the weekend.

Of course, it’s the opening ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. And just a few short minutes stood watching a massive HD screen relaying events live from the Birds Nest stadium in Beijing and already I’m wondering what it is London will offer the world when it’s our turn.

I shudder to think about it. So I won’t .. for now.
