I liked the Olympics very much. What a great experience! A picture is worth a thousand words, right? So here it is, have a look at my gallery…You can leave some comments below or click on each picture to see the original version and comment there. Please enjoy without moderation!

I loved every minute of the Games and I feel like a citizen of the world. The sheer amount of volunteers and helpers simply humbled me. I have read (French) articles explaining that trying to gain a few tenths of seconds for a race was childish but I disagree. The Olympic games are all about effort and discipline, and trying to improve yourself. The athletes are real role models. We had a fantastic time!

And don’t forget to share your experiences here.

  • Thank you for sharing your wonderful pictures, for as we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words!

    • You are very welcome. I feel very fortunate to have been able to attend!

  • I am SO envious that you were at the opening ceremony. I was one of the sceptics and didn’t even try to buy a ticket, wish I had now even though I probably wouldn’t have succeeeded.

    Anyway I am thoroughly envious having looked at your photos!

    • Good. Glad you are envious. I loved every minute of the Games and I am now suffering from some post-Olympic blues. Tough.

  • Or do I mean the CLOSING ceremony? Well, envious anyway. đŸ™‚

    I just learned our next door neighbour had been a volunteer and he said he had not had such a brilliant time for years.

    • You are really going to hate me now: I went to both ceremonies (opening AND closing)…I know, I know, I really got very lucky!

  • Glorious photos, Muriel! I’ve loved hearing your reports from all the different events that you’ve been to. What will we all talk about now?

    • I don’t know, I feel a bit lost. That said, I am sure we will find something!

  • So amazing and thank you so much for sharing! I loved the closing ceremonies, too!!!!!

    • Both ceremonies were great. I loved every minute of them…What am I going to do now?

    I hope this experience can see other people as human without considering their colour of skin which is ashamed sometimes !!! Anyway nice pictures nice vision for future hamanity !!!

    • Thank you! I am pleased that each delegation had female athletes too, and you are right, I hope that we will remember the Olympics as a great school of life!

  • Thanks for sharing the photos. They give a better sense of the event than all the TV shots in the boring coverage of the thing.

    • Thanks Julie! We really had a great time!
