Vancouver 2010

I am rather excited that the Winter Olympics open in Vancouver this evening!

The Opening Ceremony is a three-hour extravaganza which will be aired on BBC Two at 01:45 GMT Saturday Morning.

The Opening Ceremony will also première the star-studded ‘We Are The World’ cover that the US have done to help the people in Haiti (a far better song that our cover of ‘Everybody Hurts!)

It looks like Trafalgar Square is slowly getting into the spirit of the day, and I look forward to seeing what they’ve done with it on my way home!

Currently it’s as below, with a rather fab ice sculpture of the Olympic Rings (‘engraved’ with a good luck message from London).

NB – the workmen aren’t being nasty to the people of Vancouver by displaying their rumps… the area in front of the sculpture is a designated press area, so I had to snap and run heh.
