Adieu Athens

The closing ceremony of the 2004 Olympics went without a hitch last night.

The show included fireworks, dancing, closing remarks by International Olympics Committee (IOC) president Jacques Rogge; and the presentation of the Olympic flag to the mayor of Beijing, China, where the 2008 Summer games will take place.

Kudos to the organisers, the Games went off without calamity or disaster.

Now those that attended the Games, along with the locals who delayed holidays, are all making their way to the airport.

It is estimated that 200,000 people will leave for overseas destinations over the next 48 hours.
