30 minutes to go for opening ceremony
It’s just 30 minutes to go before the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics starts. China has waited 7 years just for this moment, putting up with the hassles and restrictions - I hope they think it was worth it.
I started this blog 3 years ago, so it is amazing now to think I am sitting here in Beijing writing this. It is going to be a time of my life I won’t forget!
The outdoor screen at Chaoyang Park was closed. The one at Ditan Park was open under very tight security. You couldn’t even take in food or drinks. I am happy just to watch the events unfold on television.
It is still fairly humid and I have the aircon on. It is not quite dark at the moment, but it will be when the games start. The stadium is about 80 per cent full and people had to go through four security checks just to get in the stadium.
According to a Twitter user it is hot and humid in the Birds Nest stadium.
However you feel about the games, I think everyone should just grab a beer, sit back now and watch the show. Enjoy!
