Beijing - Just Arrived

And as usual my first taste of a country is from the back of a cab...

The flight was rammed with people from the US athletics team, some competitors from Costa Rica and tons of media people from NBC and various sponsor people. On arrival at Beijing Airport there were tons of media people, stills and video, shooting people getting off the planes. There are masses of 'helpers', young Chinese people that speak English and are very eager to assist. Made the passage through the airport painless.

Now, I have to go find the Main Press Center... shower and another taxi. Oh, it's hot here, did I mention that?
