And now the Chinese anthem. It seems like yesterday that it was played during an Olympic opening or closing. Oh well, it was yesterday!!! :D

And yet another futuristic dance segment with modern music and fancy projections. I believe that after those three Asian Olympics in a row, we won't be able to distinguish them anymore, at least ceremony-wise.

I hope there's going to be more swag available here for Beijing 2022 around here. In 2008 they released more than half a dozen music albums, drinking glasses at McDonald's (which are now missed as a sponsor) and pins at HBC. 2018 was dry on swag.

Zhang Yimou wasnt lying when he said he was going to be futuristic this time instead of history lesson.

Also, is that Ode to Motherland in the background?

Isn't the song that "Ode to the Motherland" that was infamously performed in Beijing by that girl who was too ugly (according to the organisers) to perform it live, so they cast that cute lip-synching girl?

Ode to Motherland in China is what Arirang is for Korea. It's their "second" national anthem of sorts.

Yay! Just spotted the Calgary 88 logo! I wonder if we'll have a handover segment in Beijing.

Dry. There is more water in The Sahara. They already have a sweet pin set of the  area/map. Oh you know they will be sweet swag. The question will be what is real.
