Beijing: In with a Bang!

Unable to score Opening Ceremonies tickets (each one supposedly had a photo in the corner meaning they could be obtained through official channels only) we ended up watching them on TV just like all of you back at home. (Our announcer was a very tiresome New Zealander who felt compelled to talk through everything, no matter how unnecessary his commentary. I'm looking forward to the DVDs.) But when it was all over, we stuck our heads out the window and caught an amazing fireworks display. Don't they remind you of astors, dandelions and willow trees? They really are one of my favorite things. Let the games begin!
