Olympics, Beach Volleyball

Last night we watched the metal rounds of Beach Volleyball at Horse Guard Parade in the Westminster area of London.  There were no bad seats in this Colosseum type of stadium and it was really fun to watch an event we had never seen before.  The Netherlands won the bronze metal and Germany beat Brazil for the gold.  Most of the crowd was yelling for Brazil but we were a bit neutral.  The packed stands were kept entertained with constant music and dancing during all of the breaks, shown here.  Bottom pic shows Germany getting a shot past a Brazil block.  All of the Olympic crowds that I've seen, have been very patient and orderly so it's been fun to be out in the mix.
