Before the opening ceremony

The streets from Robson Square/Vancouver Art Gallery to BC Place were jam packed with people today. One can feel the gaiety in the atmosphere. Everybody was super friendly.

On the corner of Robson Beatty was a NBC camera crew who came from Orlando, Florida. One member commented that today Orlando is colder than Vancouver. A group from Ontario was more than happy to shed their heavy winter coats and snow boots.

The ticket scalpers were highly visible. Many carry a 8.5 x 11 sign advertising tickets for sale. So much for VANOC's threat of voiding all non-authorized resold tickets.
