Whatever celebration it is, china will do it up big. I can't wait to see the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Olympics...There will be more lights, more colors and more acts than any before.

It sounds like you are already gone. As excited as I am to have you back, it made me sad to think it is almost all over.
