Pretty impressive despite my dire forebodings, and much less tacky than expected. Fireworks on TV are usually totally unimpressive, but the footprints - excellent value. Scotland the Brave was a bit odd though.

Heard today, that there was a demonstration during the Chinese rider's dressage test last night. I totally support free speech and the right to demonstrate, but not the right to interfere with someone in a competition setting. His horse spooked and he was scored down. Surely the flag could have been unfurled when he finished? It would have made just as much impact.

Anyway, we are off to the cross country tomorrow, have to get up at 5.15 to get to the venue and then through the mega security measures.
