One year before the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games
By pengyang on Aug 08, 2007
One year later, the opening ceremony of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games will be hold in the National Stadium--Bird's Nest.
Jul. 13th, 2007 is a special day, especially when Samaranch made the announcement that Beijing will be the host for the 2008 Olympic Games. I was at Haikou city, Hainan province at that time, watching the TV live broadcast with some friends and cheering for this.
It's really a great honor for Beijing to have this opportunity to be the host. Things here have changed a lot based on my 9 years experience in Beijing, and that's also true for some other cities. More and more communication is happening everyday between China and the other countries. I benefit from this change since I graduated from the college and get more chances to meet with some foreign friends:-)
2008 is coming. Welcome to Beijing! Welcome to China!
