Water cube

Both the Birds Nest and the Water Cube are amazing buildings. By day and night.

At night, there are 100’s of Chinese people just hanging around taking photos, flying kites (yes kites), and roller blading. Lets also not forget the large number of people selling fake souvenirs right outside the official store, with guards looking on. The Olympic area is certainly a great place to be – unless you are hungry and your food choices are limited. Unfortunately we weren’t as prepared as the rest of the tourists who brought their own food. But we did take some great photos.
