Well…..what a truly great opening ceremony we witnessed last night at the London Olympics 2012.
The British Club celebrated the event at the Bacchus Restaurant and Wine Bar in Kyiv where we watched the event on the big screen. A bit of a surprise when we realised that BBC World was not showing the ceremony but just news reporting. It took us a few minutes to find the right channel but we did it and all was OK. (Unfortunately about four or five people ‘threw the dummy out of the pram’ while we were searching for the best channel and departed…..but that’s life).
Maybe the biggest surprise for everyone around the world was Her Majesty The Queen when she was seen to be taking part in the humour of the event from the beginning alongside actor Daniel Craig (aka 007 James Bond). Internationally recognised faces like Rowan Atkinson (aka Mr Bean), Paul McCartney, David Beckham and many many others.
The opening ceremony proved to be a truly great British event. We can all look forward to a few weeks of entertaining sport which will no doubt contain some surprises and yet more breaking of records.
