I’m watching the opening ceremonies of the 2008 olympics…something I have been looking forward to all week. I just love the olympics because of the unity, competition, and spirit that is shared by hundreds of countries around the world.
I’m also learning about what is going on with China, and receiving a geography lesson as each nation walks into the stadium. I realize how much of a novice I really am when it comes to international geography, but I also love to learn new things about the world!
I find it fascinating to learn about the various countries, athletes and stories. It’s such a unique opportunity to experience the hoopla of the Olympics from the comfort of my own couch.
I’m looking forward to the next 17 days. Reality TV that could never be scripted – exciting races, competitive spirits, unexpected events. Unforgettable moments! I love sports!
