being welcomed to the olympic village and feeling special about it

Me posing with a random volunteer who wanted his picture taken with him. Evidently he is a music teacher, who wanted my picture to show to his students. Odd don't you think?

Yesterday evening, i was lucky enough to attend the welcoming ceremony for the US delegation. All in all, it was pretty darn awesome. Some Chinese schoolchildren sang, gifts were exchanged, and a speech was given. Unbeknownst to me, or at least until very recently, my picture was even published on the BOCOG website. If you look closely in the 3rd picture below, i'm poking my head out from the second row. Gosh, i'm short.

saw the news on the CC website. Congratulations! Enjoy the Games (which look great even here in Italy, and hopefully will look even better when I get back to Taipei on Thursday).

Zai Jian!

Phoebe, what a great thing to see your blog postings. Can't wait to hear about them when you return to campus. The adventures of Fufu and Duck made me smile too. --Stormy
