Weren't the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics amazing! What a beautiful show they put on!
The following exert was taken from Official Olympic Orchestra website:
"After some morning rehearsals, the group departed for Tianjin on 57 buses. This 'motorcade' of buses was escorted by police all the way from Beijing to Tianjin. At some points the police stopped traffic on the freeway to ensure the motorcade made it through swiftly. Local onlookers had to chance to wave to the Olympic Orchestra - now a well known group after the media attention it has received in China!"
I don't know about you but it's hard to fathom a 57 bus convoy, wow!
The next day they did some sightseeing at the Forbidden City and a bit of shopping.
Here's a few faces of Spencer at the Summer Palace...
I received another email from Spencer. He shared with me some of what he's eaten so far...
"I've eaten cuttle fish, sea horse, cicada, and cockroaches, couldn't find the scorpions."
They are now on their way via sleeper train to Shanghai for their last few days in China before heading home.
