our gold medal opportunity

Most of the city is hanging on these games in one way or another and game tickets are cheap so it seems the best thing to do is to join in with the festivities! We've been able to see several games- handball (turns out to be a decent sport), tennis (we saw American J. Blake beat Federer), and volleyball- and we have a day of track and field in the Birds Nest still ahead (this Friday- Matt will be there with some guys... its too long a day for me!). To wrap things up, we will get to watch the Gold Medal Baseball game and cheer for Ryan Hall in the marathon as he runs just a block away from our apartment.

Here's a few summer pictures for you-
