2012 London Olympic Games - Opening Ceremony @ Saturday, July 28, 2012
The London Olympics started this morning, 5.30am here, and there was a repeat at 2pm I'm told. Slept in so I missed it. And it's not on youtube thanks to copyright stuff, even though the dvd's not going to be out for a while. So for now all we've got is pretty pictures.

Fireworks fall from the Olympic rings during the opening ceremony.
Stems of the Olympic flame come together to form one, lighting the cauldron.
