Look, But Don’t Touch

When we were in Beijing, we took a quick trip on the subway to see some of the more prominent Olympic venues. The buildings were definitely out of this world, especially at night, with all of the progressive designs that were implemented into these buildings and the amazing color they are lit at night, they were very photogenic. However, Every single building is blocked off with an unsightly fence. This is the best picture I could get of this building, and the closest as well. Maybe they open the gates up at certain days, but this is one of the few dissapointments I had on our trip. I really wanted to get some good up-close shots of some of these venues..

    They are being used somewhat, but we heard from a lot of locals that China is having a hard time to find interested teams or hosts that would like to utilize the venues. We even heard from a few people that the Birds Nest stadium might be converted into a multi-story-shopping center. Too bad!
