We were up early today to get in some practice and look at the race hill - it looks quite nice.

We were taken down to the town of Brasov for the Opening Ceremony.  Cormac carried the Irish flag and the rest of the team including Alan, the Chef de Mission, Diego, our coach and Nessa, the Physio, marched behind.

The ceremony was held in an outside stadium and it was absolutely freezing - i suppose we should have been pleased that it wasn't snowing because it had done so earlier in the day.  Kirsten and I left after the ceremonial part of the proceedings because we are racing tomorrow but we could see the fireworks from the bus window.
