As promised, the Olympic Torch in Kuala Lumpur, for the 2nd time in the history of the modern Olympics.
I came out of rehearsal, made my way to Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square) and waited for the launch of the event. There were hundreds of people, none of them protesters. I found my spot and was sure I'd get a damned great shot. But suddenly, when the torch relay began, the crowd of people rushed in and all I could see was a sea of heads. People crowded the relay path and the torch bearers were slowed to a crawl.
Today I witnessed an historic event in my lifetime. I teared a little, believing in everything the Games stood for: Brotherhood, Peace and Hope. I only wish everyone saw it too. Free Tibet.
Tomorrow, and a couple days following, I'll post shots of the interesting things I witnessed on this great day.
