Rio 2016 - Part 2 [Dish #65]

By the same token however, we also had many enormous let downs.

The Opening Ceremony


As the Olympics draw nearer to a close, I feel like sharing my thoughts on them a little with a sort of "mini-series". The Rio Olympics have been marred by controversy - something I'll talk about in another entry - but there have been plenty of high notes as well.

I think one of those high notes was the opening ceremony. Whilst the supposed theme of doing more with less was very obviously a necessity, not a choice, I think that the opening ceremony

Desires [Dish #58]
