Returning to China

I flew into Beijing the night the Closing Ceremony for the Olympics was on. From the plane I saw the fireworks that kicked of the ceremony.

What struck me most was the lack of traffic on the streets, maybe they were all inside watching tv, but it was sooo quiet. The traffic plans have reduced pollution as well, so the skies have been blue most days, and it is amazing to see this in Beijing.

I tried to get tix to the Opening of the Paralympics but it was sold out. Unfortunately I have to leave town so I will miss the Para events as well.

I am off to BKK then India, Pakistan, Tibet and Nepal, before heading home at end October.
