I didn’t think the air could possibly clear.
The subway system had been expanded.
We got off at the stop for the Temple of Heaven
The Temple of Heaven rose like a tiered wedding cake in the center of a square
Thick, warm air sifted through the barrier
In her hand was an Olympic torch
The Long Walk
Someone in the crowd said he was 102 years old.
Inspiring Olympics banners appeared at random throughout the city
flower displays everywhere
A row of topiary reminded me of the sporting aspect of the Olympics
“Dad, were those plants here this morning?”
