Though we have to walk about 1 km for security reasons, and have to wait a long for ceremony to get started. But it is worth wait and watch. Its a beautiful feeling over there, You will be automatically charged up.

Ceremony: Interesting to see, cool moves Though we waited long for it to start, the ceremony itself was very interesting to look at, including the atmosphere leading up to the actual ceremony.
