The luggage arrived just in time for us to leave for the Opening . We walked from our Condo to BC Place which was only about 15 minutes away. Along the way we saw a crowd gathering and without realizing it we ran right into the torch as it was being carried through the streets on its way to the opening ceremony. . . Talk about more luck than sense!!!! The ceremony was absolutely spectacular!!! It was like being in a virtual reality experience that we were invited to participate in by using flashlights and drums which were provided by the Olympic organizers. It was like one huge party and everyone here is so friendly to us. We have met people from New Zealand, Australia, Germany and tons of Canadians. Being all dressed in Red, White and Blue, we get a lot of "Yay, USA!!!!! Today we are going up to Cypress Mountain which is where they had a problem with lack of snow but it looks like it is a go! Today after a short 1 hour trip we will be seeing the Women's Freestyle Moguls. We will be making a lot of noise with our cow bells. Stay tuned!!!!
