Knee How in Beijing. The second day. ....Evening at the Olympic sport complex
As I came out of the forbidden city it was a relief to spot our ever smiling friend Charlie as he waved at me. We had to walk a little to the spot where he had parked his car, a brand new Peugeot.
I noticed that we were passing a hutong, portions of it were fenced off with sheets and workers were busy breaking up the place. I had also observed as we were driving on the main thorough fares, long stretches of newly built and painted compound walls. The surprise was what was inside the well made compound walls. They appeared to be old type of structures and the alleys were very narrow. Anyway there are no pictures as I was running behind Charlie who was walking at a brisk pace.
I did take these two pictures as 'Dhristi Bhottu' for the amazing city!
Well we thought as Tara was busy at the workshop, we could drive around the olympic complex in the evening, so that we could say that we had seen the 'Bird's Nest'. It appears that it was opened for public on that very day, but was closed by the time we got there. However, it was a pleasant walk around the complex though a little nippy!
