08-08-08 The Games Begin in Beijing

We were supposed to be preparing to make a trip of a lifetime to Beijing, not just to attend the Summer Games, but also to celebrate a milestone anniversary. Well, it’s not to be. But, I can still enjoy the televised broadcasts from the comfort of my own living room, instead of having to practice on natives who probably speak English far better than I can speak a few phrases in Mandarin.
