Party and celebrations for the Commonwealth games

Some of us are really enthusiatic about the games while some of us have to be dragged kicking into watching it. But, once you walked into the city of Melbourne, it is difficult not to feel an exciting energetic spirit in the air. And that was how I felt in the city yesterday.

People were strolling around with paper flags and noise makers given out by Telstra. There were partying in the streets, with a concert right in the heart of the city. It was also easy to spot all the visitors getting lost in Flinders street station. Just can’t help feeling happy and excited about the games. The only people whom I met who didn’t look happy were all those people dressed in suits. Message: SMILE!

Is anyone working today? I know I am working from home, refusing to be part of the happy crowds trying to fight our way into the city. But I’ll be staying home watching the opening ceremony on TV. Just can’t afford those ticket prices!

    I’m looking forward to it. I’m coming in from the USA … not specifically for the Games, but I’ll just happen to be in Melbourne at the same time. So, naturally, we’re going to party it up and try to watch some of the events. Keep the beer flowing until I get there on Monday!
