Rio 2016 opening ceremony (Live Blogging)

I’m enjoying the use of the digital video projectors. It makes for a much grander scale and pallette for the choreography. I’m reminded a bit of the whole English creation myth we got to see in the London Ceremony. Everyone gets to act out the history of the world as een through their eyes. (20:26 EDT)

Portuguese colonization is next up. This is sadly when the 4million indigenous people start to lose their lands.Slave trade enters the country and does not leave until 1888, a number of years after the U.S. Civil War. So sad. One day I would love to see Egypt host an Olympics and get to tell their story in the opening ceremonies. And India too! And why not Vietnam? (20:31 EDT)
