The Olympic Stadium in Beijing

So, I am back from my trip. Today is my birthday as well...I don't really like birthdays anymore...they seem to come and go faster and faster as I get older...

I was on 10 different airplanes the past 10 days...flew to Taipei, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Saigon, and Hoi An in Vietnam before returning late last night to Jakarta. I took over a thousand photos, so I will be featuring some from my whirlwind trip the next couple of weeks.

I got out for a couple of hours one night in Beijing...I wanted photos of the "Bird's Nest" and the "Water Cube" at night. It was REALLY cold, but I walked around with my tripod, and got some cool shots...this is the front entrance to the "Bird's Nest"...
