Opening Ceremonies from the German House

Opening Ceremony tickets were hard to come by with 60,600 in attendance ~ so many of us needed to find alternative locations to take in the ceremony. One of Ali's friends is German and had suggested that we headed down to Saxony House. In hind sight, it was a pretty good idea as the other possible venues were outside and the rain just poured down!

We arrived about an hour before the ceremonies began and met Katy in the VIP room. We managed to snag some seats which was a huge score as the chairs were tough to come by.

The ceremony viewing:

There was entertainment to boot ~ it was a great Umpah band. Nice Pants!

And there she is ~ the Olympic Flame in all her glory.
