So, I saw some of the fireworks leading up to the bird's nest, but the smog/haze was too thick to see anything from the stadium. bummer. but, I'm hanging out in the air conditioning with a screen and projector~ not bad. those poor "cheerleaders" who have to dance in cowboy boots for HOURS...
so, i thought it might be like this, but there are hardly Any cars on the roads right now!!! wow. once in a lifetime indeed!!!!
Team China is just rounding the last bend. there should be fireworks soon. (i hope)
I don't envy anybody the trip out of the stadium.
The body caligraphy was really awesome, and the light shows were really incredible.
OOH and the world that came out of the ground, with the people dancing on it...that was awesome. the costumes, the endless supply of beautiful women in gorgeous dresses...very cool.
*the song Sarah Brightman sang- that was the second song, that I only changed two small things about. but how freakin' brilliant to hear them sing it. The president of the beijing olympic committee is speaking now, but since it's local Chinese tv, i have no idea what he's saying. i can pick out about 7 words. but i do know when they say, "one world, one dream" (teng yi ge shi jie, teng yi ge meng xiang) Aw Yeah!!!
:) i miss everybody heaps (but i did go out with a hot Australian guy last night and it turns out yesterday was Chinese Valentine's Day) ha. i also have no idea what I'm saying right now because I haven't had a decent night's sleep in what feels like a decade. but man, i am having the time of my life.
