Although I was unable to see the Olympic opening ceremonies live, I had a great time watching it on TV in the Czech House. I never knew that some countries competing in the Olympics had houses that are open to the public. The Czech House is open to anybody and totally free (unless you count the 9000 won for a beer). There was a diverse crowd there, which made it extremely exciting to watch the ceremonies. If somebody cheered for a country, the whole place would erupt in solidarity. This showcased the Olympic spirit and made for a positive atmosphere to be a part of.
My favorite part of watching the games was when the unified Korea team walked out together. I thought it was very symbolic of peace and the spirit of coming together.
