The Rio Olympics Opening Ceremony In Pictures

Last night the 2016 Rio Olympics were opened with a spectacular opening ceremony. I'll admit I did not see it as it wasn't live until about 1 AM my time and that was too late for me, but the pictures below tell me it was colorful and vibrant, just like Brazil and Brazilians.
Good luck to all the athletes taking part.
