Watched the opening ceremony with a group of Aussie friends and it was absolutely breathtaking, especially the Orca Whales scene. Didn't like the version of Oh Canada...much too slow and jazzed up! My girlfriend Maria (former Montrealer) and I decided we would stand & belt it out properly, much to the surprise of our friends!. Let the games begin and have a wonderful celebration over the next two weeks Canada...I'll be with you all every step of the way!....Diane xxx P.S. We'd had a glass or two of Champagne to celebrate in style! .
