We told our guide we wanted to see the Beijing 2008 Olympic sites if possible, so we stopped for a photo op of the Birds Nest and the Water Cube last week in Beijing. In the theme of it we went ahead and sung the Olympic intro song they played at the beginning and end of each commercial break during the city panoramic shots. It’s like we were there!! Oh wait, we were.
This post is dedicated to Matt and Wendy Bayer, who inspired in us an obsession of the Water Cube, and with whom we watched many memorable moments of Beijing 2008 Olympic swimming. I distinctly remember knowing the Bayers were real friends that night in August when Wendy called and said, “Our power went out. Is your power on? Good, we’re coming over because the swimming finals are on tonight!!” Miss you!
