You are up pretty late. You will need your sleep for opening ceremonies.

By the way - I heard a report that you can bring your own food inside the Olympic venues. Is that true? If so - cool.

No idea on the food thing :)

But the adrenaline of SNARK will keep us awake.

Does anyone know just how long the opening ceremony will take?Plan on 4-5 hours.

If you happen to be going to Opening Ceremonies - double that.

Well apparently they decide to shorten it by half an hour so people can get home by midnight! (More like they can't negotiate the contract with the transport for london people + security firms overtime, notorious inflexible and greedy).

It is 3 hours long, 1 hour shorter than Beijing.

Here's an article about it

Personally I am not too happy! Danny Boyle has designed a opening ceremony that lasts longer, now think all that resources and efforts gone to waste because someone want to force others playing cinderalla. Possible positives will be now we might get quality over quantity, though hopefully the whole thing will still be coherent like it was intended.

So true:D:D:D

Me and boyfriend will camp on a matress in front of the TV, turn on the lavalamp, eat lots of chips and tickle each other if we fall asleep. But we won't, you guys already made our day over in the other thread. German outfits = SS Barbie & Ken hahahahahaha:rofl:
Can't wait to see other outfits!

The ranking rounds for the archery competitions are taking place today. It is closed to the public, but had been labelled as an "unticketed" event. There has been some misunderstanding naturally and some members of the public have shown up at the venue looking to get in. Oh dear. :slinkaway
