Yesterday was my first day attending the Beijing Olympics and was it a busy one! From the brand new but crowded subway to the mega-security lines and then into the Olympic Green, Beijing has impressed all around. After wondering around the Olympic Green, we attended the quarterfinals and the semifinals of fencing (men’s team epee). Later in the afternoon we saw the mens individual archery competition in which the American lost to the Mexican. Finally the Ukrainian won and I got to watch my first Olympic Medal presentation ceremony, live in person!
Later in the evening, I caught the USA women’s volleyball victory over China (on TV) and then we ended the evening at the Holland (Heineken) House, which was good fun.
