China is very excited to host the Olympics. Despite all things political, it is good to see the whole world come together in the name of sportsmanship. Hong Kong is co-sponsoring the Olympics with all equestrian events being held here. We heard tickets were a nightmare to obtain, and by the time we even thought about it, they were sold out. In honor of the games, my office closed at 4:00 p.m. today. My friend, The Fab Miss B, is at the games in Beijing, and you can read about her experience on her blog.
The front page of the paper: This countdown sign was installed a year ago in a busy subway station. I walk past it every day to and from work. It always attracts photographers, but today it was crazy.
