The opening cermonies were fantastic. As we were sitting patiently waiting for them to begin the phone rang. It was Shona. "We are on our way. It is pouring with rain. We are on the Sea to Sky Highway with a police and helicopter escort! We only found out at 3 pm that we were coming!" The stadium erupted when the Canadian team walked on. The highlight was K.D Laing singing Halelujah.
The air here in vancouver is literally filled with with druming, shouts of joy and Canadian Pride.
Unfortunately the weather is too warm in Whistler and Shona's first event has been cancelled. So the hurry up and wait game is on. Still here is Vanvouver there are lots of interesting things too do. We are parents of the athletes are being treated well, beautiful hotel and tonnes of food. I like it.
