"We are ready!"

We hear this a lot lately in Beijing - we are ready! We're talking about the Olympics of course, and it's evident all over town.

These are some signs I saw at the airport the other day:

And a friendly team of volunteers is ready to assist visitors when they arrive at the airport:

Most importantly, the air appears to be ready for the Olympics. Just look at how blue the sky was yesterday. The city government recently stopped all manufacturing in the city and some traffic controls are already in place, more strict ones will start on Monday. It's paying off.

Wow, I have been to Beijing many times. The last time I seen a blue sky was during Spring 4 years ago! I hope it stays this way for a long long time.
