There has been no greater effort to honor the Olympic movement than what China has put forth for the 2008 Olympics.
Take the world’s two largest sporting events – the Olympics and the Paralympics – and put them down right in the middle of one of the largest countries, with the longest durations of history and civilization, and in the middle of a huge city of some 17 millions.
I can hardly wait to begin the Beijing Siteseeing – both the athletic sites and the historic sites. I have a brand new pair of tennis shoes, and I expect to wear them out experiencing this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Hopefully I can continue to post messages to this thread during my stay in China. Time will tell.
