China's Amazing Olympic Show
After watching the Opening Ceremony of the Beijing games all I can say is WOW.
What an amazing show.
The lights, the colours, the children, the flying acrobats, the printing blocks that morphed into the Great Wall, the 2008 Tai Chi performers who moved as one. And of course the awesome fireworks.
What a thing of beauty. It was the best show I've ever seen.
And to make things even more special for me.... there was even a pipe band.
When I heard Scotland the Brave playing as the athletes marched in, at first I thought I was hallucinating.
Then I thought oh no....don't tell me the Chinese invented the bag pipes too.
But it was only the humble Mains of Fintry Pipe Band.
What a wonderful story.
Unfortunately I don't have any video of them playing at the Opening Ceremony.
But here they are in ....um.....Confolens....
You know they may be amateurs. But I like them.
Well done laddies and lassies.
Well done China....
