Beijing Olympics One Year Before.

Today, in one year, the Beijing Olympics will open. As expected there are a lot of articles writing about the good, the bad and the ugly of what will come.

The day of the start is 8-8-2008. The 8 is a lucky number in China despite that officially superstition is not allowed here.

I’m no fortuneteller but one thing is for sure, the amount of attention these Olympic Games will get, will outdo any previous event.

Yesterday’s SCMP cartoon shows some of the hurdles to be taken.

The good thing is that it can only get better.
