I got into Beijing from Shanghai, and immediately went to bed (anyone would, being very tired, and not used to the time difference), and woke up, and it was time for the Olympics.

First in the Birds Nest Stadium I watched Racewalking finals, Javelin Prelims, Men's 100 Decathlon, Women's High jump Prelims, and Men's Decathlon Long Jump.

After that, I walked around the greens, took the subway (very clean, cheap, and easy to use), and went back to the hotel to deposit some friendlies. Finally we went to the women's bronze and gold medal soccer games.

For the first game, Germany had the advantage of the home crowd (China). Cheers went up whenever they had the ball. And the Germans took the bronze medal.

Then, the USA team fought Brazil for the gold. The score was tied 0-0 until finally the US came out with a goal in the first overtime. Brazil took a few shots, but no goal was scored, and the US came out with the gold!
