Beautiful Vancouver

Did you watch the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Vancouver?


Here at Number 10 we watched and cried...or at least we watched. I cried.


The TV was running hot all weekend what with the Opening Ceremony and the beginning of competition

There were a couple of stand outs for me though...

Joni Mitchell singing "Both Sides Now" Simply beautiful!


Slam Poet Shane Koyczan...and K.D. Lang's haunting rendition of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah"


I've read a couple of comments on forums where some Canadians believe the poem "We Are More" by Shane Koyczan, wasn't appropriate for the event and in fact, displayed a type of insecurity by Canada.

I disagree. I thought it was sensational!

But then, I'm not Canadian.

Vancouver is an absolutely gorgeous city....we have friends there and will be visiting them in a couple of months. I can't wait!!!

  1. I only saw snippets of the opening ceremony but from what I saw it looked pretty spectacular. How lucky that you will be visiting that beautiful city later in the year!! Hope your weekend was a lovely one x

  3. Hi Lesley,
    I have failed miserably in the Winter Olympic Watching stakes.....not one little bit apart from items in the news has passed my eyes. Why is this I wonder? Get yourself together girl and get WATCHING!
