Can't Get Close Yet

Most tourists near the venues appears to be Chinese at the moment. Very few Americans, Europeans, Aussies, etc. It's all cordoned off but we wanted to do a dry run to figure out how to get there. Subways are easy but it took 1.5 hours in a non-rush period. We think USA Swimming has a bus for us. If not, a cab is $6 but they say traffic for cars will be a mess. Many American swimmer families are staying at our hotel. It's kind of easy to pick us all out.

As the video clip will show, there is a haze. That's the the Water Cube followed by the Bird's Nest. Olympic volunteers are absolutely everywhere and could not be more friendly or willing to assist.
