It's Day 5 - 9.45 am on Wednesday and although I'm emotionally energised I'm physically exhausted. The weather in Sydney is picture perfect but it's spring and there are lots of pollens in the air and, as we haven't had any rain, lots of dust ... so my asthma has been acting up - the nebuliser is getting a real workout.

The first game of basketball my son and I watched in the Dome at Olympic Park today was Senegal vs Brazil. Senegal was outclassed by Brazil. Once again the crowd was full of highly decorated Brazilians and a trumpeter (was he the one I saw at the volleyball or is the trumpet a national Brazilian instrument?)

I'm done in after watching Team USA play Russia. From my home (you'd call it a ranch) on the edge of Sydney we drive to a bus (7 mins) or train station (15 mins) and take the bus (40 mins) or train (15 mins) to Olympic Park. The transport is very well organised - no private vehicles are allowed near the Olympic precinct...but there is at least a 25 min walk from the transport into the closest venue (if I'm going to a south venue I get a train or a north venue the bus otherwise the walk could be up to an hour!!)
