Dario gave me a call the other day and asked if I could help with some students he had in private classes.
The first group contained six students that work for Pesca Panama, which is a sport fishing company based out of the Pedregal Marina. This was an interesting group. Many, if not all, had had zero training in English before starting with Dario three months ago.
If you did not watch the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics, you missed a tremendous ceremony. I believe I enjoyed it more than any I can remember. They really put on a great show.
They had James Bond escort the Queen in the Palace. They had Mr. Bean playing in the orchestra (what a riot he was). They had music across the years. And of course, they had the competitors marching into the stadium.
Muhammad Ali was even there. How special was that.
I couldn’t help but think, as I watched all the young athletes march in, that there are a lot of beautiful people in the world. All had bright smiling faces, bright sparkling eyes, and the hopes of each of their countries on their shoulders.
The raising of the Olympic flag was accompanied with music that would sooth a tortured sole.
Then there was the ceremony of the Olympic torch, which was carried into the stadium. It was used to light flames for each of the countries. Truly beautiful. Then the fireworks were amazing.
Sir Paul McCartney sang Hey Jude. There was something for everyone in the opening ceremony. I am glad I didn’t miss it.
I took a couple photos while I watched the TV. Of course for Lilliam, I had to take the following photo of Costa Rica’s participants. I took the photos with the iPhone, so the quality isn’t great.
Of course I had to get Panama’s Irving Saladino, and President Martinelli.
