The games of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing, People's Republic of China closed today. We found the Olympic venues, the young and old city architecture, landscapes, and competition shown on the TV coverage in the United States to be stunning. Tonight we held our own closing ceremony, taking down our Olympic flag and playing games with the boys. Next up are the 2010 XXI Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
