Beijing Impression

To prepare for the 2008 Olympics, Beijing has undergone some massive changes. Therefore, even though it’s not my first visit to Beijing but the modern Beijing is still very new to me. 

What surpised and touched me most about the city was not the high-tech buildings, excellent highways, impressive Olympics games venues, and renovated tourist spots; but instead, it was how I felt about the people there – they are confident, happy, proud of themselves and their motherland. In addition, I can tell they are very determined to build a better country for their future and next generation. Isn’t it one of the reasons why we wanted to host the Olympic games ?

  1. We are back and indeed we had a good time there. Lots and lots of people, just like CNY. The bird’s nest is in the northern part of Beijing but pretty easy to access. You should consider to go there with Anne and Joseph.
