Beijing Welcomes the World

It was a mind-blowing opening ceremony ever! I don't think I've ever seen anything like that...

China opened the Olympics to the world last night with a spectacular show that the world would never forget. It was the most beautiful, most detailed, and most stunning performance I've ever watched on TV. According to my dad, it justified perfectly the purchase price of that new HD television in their living room. The Friday night show just fit the bill! The Chinese showed the world just the right definition of discipline, perfection, and good coordination. If you have watched the show, you know what I'm talking about... taking in everything from giant scrolls and a representation of the Great Wall formed by thousands of people, to astronauts drifting from the roof of the Bird's Nest stadium. It was also one of those moments where you just sit in your comfy sofa and you'll be like ohh and ahh on the costumes. It was definitely something that's hard to beat by the next Olympic host. Could London do better in 2012?
