We made it, and holy crap, this place is amazing. We have been in the village for 4 hours, and I've already seen a few famous athletes, and a lot of amazing stuff... Unfortunetely our internet connection is pretty rough, so I'm struggling to upload pictures if any. It takes a while, and most of the time it fails. I'll try and put up as many as I can for now though.
Day 1 in Beijing
The Seoul airport, pretty neat place...
Beijing airport, myself riding the train, the driver was all over the place slowing down and speeding up for a good solid 8 minutes, I almost upchucked
Heading in the bus to the Olympic village... riding in the Olympic lane... only used by Olympic personnel. The other 2 lanes were a traffic jam.
Security checkpoint to get into the village... serious shit, just like an airport
Few of the antillian dutchies waiting for the bus to take us to tower A9 (our building) and check into our rooms for the first time
Our whole team occupying a bus on the way to our building, checking out the scenery and amazing village
The dining hall... holy shit, massive place. Can seat 10 thousand people easily. Saw a couple famous athletes (Cat Osterman (USA softball ace), Nalbandian(tennis player I guess)). Every kind of food you can think of, and McDonalds of course.
Free drinks... any and all we can drink, these fridges (iceboxes) are everywhere. We also received a coke chip, to get free drinks from any beverage machine in the olympic village... awesomeness.
