Begin the Beijing

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.

Wow.

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.
