2008 Olympic 1 Year Countdown

Today marks the start of the 2008 Olympic (08.08.08) countdown. I happen to be in Beijing, lucky enough to have witnessed this and be part of it.

There were so many people coming to the Tiananmen Square. I am not a person like crowds, and it is a hot weather (summer), so instead of going there, I went to have nice dinner at the Back Lake. (后海)

I am amazed with what the government can do to prevent raining in the city. I was told that they shoot missles to the sky to break the cloud!!!

Anyway, clearing the cloud not only prevented the rain, I think the haze is also improved today.
