Beijing Welcomes You: Unveiling the Capital City of the Future

Beijing Welcomes You: Unveiling the Capital City of the Future - Tom Scocca Definitely could have been shorter, tighter. I thought it would be more about Beijing and the experience of a foreigner (US born) living there. And certainly it is. But I think it's equally about the transformation of any city hosting the Olympic games. I hope to never have to go through that spectacle. Couldn't help wondering why the author and his wife continued to subject their health and particularly their newborn son's to such danger from the pollution of Beijing at that time, when they could so easily live elsewhere.
