The saga of 8-year-old Hannah Mitchell at her first Olympics continues

Last night I went to see the Olympic cauldron, it was raining and cold out and we had to wait in line but it went fast and only took 15 minutes to get to the top of the lookout. When we go to the top of the lookout it really started to rain hard and the wind blew the rain right onto us so we got wet but the closer we got to the cauldron the more you could feel the heat from the burning fires, which felt like a big campfire.


The cauldron looked like a family of five torches all together as one. The flames will be turned off at the end of the games on Sunday.


Also from the lookout you get to see the Olympic rings floating on a barge.


When you walk around Vancouver you can see many ways people show their love for their country by carrying Canadian flags or hanging them from windows, I saw this big crane that had maple leafs in different colored lights all the way to the top.
