I'm looking forward to the closing ceremony tonight but I would love to know more about what's happening, who's directed it etc. The bit from Jane is great, thanks Grace (and Jane). Do you have any idea where I can source more information? Everything is kept so hush, hush here in Sydney.<P>J

Actually, it's still going on Stuart. Image The opening ceremony for the Paraolympics is tomorrow (18/10/2000)! <P>Well, since you closed the opening ceremony thread after my lengthy comments, Grace, I think I'll refrain from commenting on the closing ceremony. Image Glad you liked it! <P>Oh, just one thing -- the highlight for me was definately Elle's prancing!

Oh, Jennifer, please share your views with us about the Closing Ceremony.<P>I heard on the radio yesterday that tourist enquiries from the UK to Australia have increased sharply since the Olympics.

Jen, are you referring to Elle MacPherson? If so, Stuart would like her phone number.<P>And yes please give us a description... not of Elle... but of the Closing Ceremony, Opening Ceremony, whatever...
