Thoughts on the beginning of Opening Ceremony
And here's what the Al Jazeera team in Stratford think of the main event so far.
Al Jazeera presenter Andy Richardson says 'its growing on him and getting good.'
Al Jazeera Executive Producer James Pratt says 'he is loving the music' and 'he is amazed by how they got the big towers up'
Freelance reporter Matt Rumsey says 'amateur theatricals' are mildly entertaining
Website sports editor Joanna Tilley says 'she is too busy working to know what is going on'
But the crowd seem to love it - we can hear them from our office in East Stratford.
