Rachel, 11 - Spectator
I was born in London. I moved to Beijing when I was 6 weeks old. When I was 2 I moved back to the UK because I had leukemia. I live in Richmond with my mum and my little brother, Daniel. My favourite subject is DT. My favourite sports are riding and swimming. I often go to Scotland where my grandpa lives on an island.
Watching the closing ceremony - 26/08/08
It's the 26th of August and it's coming to the end of my holiday in China. In the past four weeks I've really enjoyed myself as I've been to water parks with my friend, I've gone to the countryside and I've gone horse riding, skating, rowing, swimming and lots of other things! I've also done family things, going to the same beach every year starting from when my Grandma was a child. And I've also done things that the whole world enjoys watching and doing like the Olympics!
I enjoyed myself so much when I went to see the gymnastics and football; I've never even been in a place with so many people let alone something in the Olympics! Looking at the Bird's Nest was amazing too - it was so big!
I saw the closing ceremony too and I thought the fireworks were better than the ones at the opening ceremony. I liked the bikes in a circle and the moon shoes. They looked fun!
I've really enjoyed this trip to China with the Olympics and all, and one thing that is really great is it's going to be in England next time so it's both my countries in a row! I saw Boris Johnson and I told the whole family I've shaken his hand before which is true! And on Sunday I got interviewed by Newsround and they got us free ice cream!
I've really enjoyed myself this year and I've had the best holiday in ages!
