Now that the Olympics is over, so what's next, Beijing? You have probably seen the Olympic Closing Ceremonies last night (or morning) and all I could is: “Zhang Yimou is the master of flying here and there. It was a performance showcasing the best of Chinese acrobats, flexibility and agility. And the rest was just like the usual big variety show that we see on TV during Chinese New Year's Eve. Nevertheless, I was floored and awed by the grandiose closing performance. This Olympic is definitely China's time to shine, be heard, be seen and be talked about!” Photo below: This man was Rollerblading around the Olympic Park to the entertainment of everyone. He was such a celebrity. He stood there for a long time with tourists taking pictures of him and with him. This is such a brilliant idea! I dunno how he buried all those needles on his head. ;))
Have you found your flag? I found mine–above his left ear.
Lovers on the subway. Too tired after the Games.
Picnic in front of the Bird's Nest.
And another family picnic on the other side of the Bird's Nest.
Volleyball Ad imitation.
Ready, Get Set, GO!!!!!

She might look like a winner but I'm definitely way hotter than her! LOL!!!!! In my dreams…. :))
I need to cut his hand. He's way taller than the billboard! :))
These men were looking from the gate outside the venue of the football match. I wish I could give each of them a ticket.
Chinese restaurants are beautifully decorated and lighted.
A tired volunteer at the Water Cube.
The Olympic Tower. Below this is the NBC stage where Katie Couric (I suspect the spelling is wrong) does her morning show in the US.
At 10:40 PM, when my friends and I are on our way to the subway from the Water Cube, we saw this man sleeping on top of the Coca Cola box. He's the Olympic Park street cleaner. He must have been tired doing his rounds.
Five meters from where the man above was sleeping, is this girl giving instructions to people which direction we should all take going to the subway.
The escalator is in between two walls of red drums. Below the escalator, is the McDonald's.
A shop displaying pride and nationalism.
The volunteers. Back view.
The volunteers. Front View.
At the end of the day, this is me on the subway. ;)
