"23th July 2021.
It is now just before 6 p.m., 5:40 p.m.

And I'm sitting in the Olympic Stadium. It is already an exciting sight. All the mad photographers have arrived. I'm sitting in position "A", relatively central and good. And yes, now we can wait for the spectacle. At the photo briefing, there was no restriction whatsoever as far as Corona was concerned, so there were simply 500 photographers in one spot.
 
The stadium is empty, very restrictive. The royal family will also be sitting here, which means it's an exciting moment, because that was also the case in 1964, so to speak, that the games were assigned to the emperor (as a person of honour). They are here again today. And yes, we can wait and see. A lot will happen here with projections, from all directions. That means the interior is white and you can wait and see what exciting things will happen."

"So, back from the opening ceremony.
I am pretty exhausted.
 
Yes, it was an hour longer than planned, then of course the transport back didn't work at all. As usual here now with the Japanese, a disaster.

The opening ceremony was quite nice.
But I have to be honest: it wasn't a big highlight. I really thought there would be more. Many chances were more or less wasted.
 
Especially with regard to the speeches and so on given by the IOC etc. That was not good, in my opinion. The beginning of the opening was great and also the end was quite cool, because there was one or two good moments. (Example: the staging of the pictograms). But basically: what was important was not thematised. That was a pity.
 
My summary: it was a great experience.
And now: good night.
