Anyone going?
My wife and I are headed to HK next week for the equestrian events and then on to Shanghai for a few days.

I plan to meet Phil K there and if anyone else from the Café is going it would be fun to meet up.

If I had the bucks, I would be spending it on the D700, a few prime lens, extra goodies for the new toy, and who knows.............a HD flat screen TV to watch the Olympics.

Anywho..........sounds like an awesome trip. Enjoy and GO USA!!!!

My best friend, who is currently living in Seoul, was going to go, but he's currently blacklisted from entering China (long story) so now I can't live vicariously through him.

Equestrian events are in HK.

And isn't NBC bringing us tape-delayed coverage again--AKA, "yesterdays news"?

Other events are also in Qingdao...a city in Shandong province (and home of Tsingtao beer!)

Don't feel bad, my nephew was expelled from China for staging "Romeo & Juliet" at his missionary school. Knowing him, there may have been a political or Christian overtone that they didn't like.

Sounds like a fun adventure. Don, make Phil take you down to Wan Chai for street photography and Tiger Balm Gardens. My favorite moment I didn't have a camera for: Split open ox heads in the gutter, fresh brains on display for sale.
