Opening Ceremonies

We've been having so much fun that I haven't had any time to blog, so here's the update. We arrived at Opening Ceremonies at 7pm as the tickets indicated that it started at 7:30pm. We were so excited!

When we took our seats, there was an agrarian scene with cows, horses, and sheep. Volunteers were walking around giant balloon clouds.

Opening ceremonies then proceeded to start an hour and a half late. By the time it was about to start, apparently some PETA type people were concerned that the animals had been kept out too long, so the majority of them were removed from the stage. 

I'm going to have to rewatch the opening ceremonies when I get home, since a lot of it was pretty confusing from the audience. For example, why was Voldemort battling Mary Poppins?

What was going on with all of those people dancing around that house? Does anyone actually like the NHS? That said, Paul McCartney singing Hey Jude, the James Bond/ Queen Elizabeth video, and David Beckham looking mostly perfect in a suit with the Olympic torch made up for all of rest. And of course the fireworks were glorious.
