And you know what birds do in birds nests.. Review with images

AdvantagesIts only three years ago.

DisadvantagesToo long review I know

"...place in such anticipation, the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony seeing 205 countries competitors march proudly around the impressive 'Birdsnest' stadium with equally huge smiles. It was a startling party and very Chinese Circus, all manner of exquisite celebrations and visual treats to wow the 90, 000 crowd. The Chinese were taking no chances with any minor detail, even 'seeding' the storm clouds over the stadium to stop any disruptive rain in true ..." Read review

Christine Ohuruogu won a gold medal for her efforts in the 400m ..." Read review

Was the olympics as good as it seemed?

Advantagesgreat opening ceremony

Disadvantagesnot so good crowd level

"The Beijing Olympics was a real success on the television screen looking smooth and well organized , but was it? Beijing opening ceremony was I have to say very well done using technology, cleverness and obviously a lot of money to attract an audience from all across the globe, I think it will be hard to beat for London in 2012. Further more the press who went to see the games have said how wonderful everything was and how they got through security ..." Read review
