The early part of the Olympic opening ceremony was beautiful, but nothing ever matches the joy and wonder of watching all of the athletes march in.
Here in the States, it's marred a bit by the dreadful American announcers. One of them (there are three, all male) has just made an unkind comment about the clothing worn by the athletes from Hungary. The women's suits are made from a cheerful patterned fabric, white with large scattered red flowers that look to be peonies or roses. They look fabulous!
How terribly gauche of the announcer. He needs a reprimand, fast.
