Preparing for National Day...

Walking on campus today I passed by a group preparing to participate in the National Day parade.

The parade that I, as a foreigner, am forbidden to go near, but can watch on TV.

It is the biggest celebration in 60 years and with a population of 1.3 billion... I guess crowd control makes sense.

It would be fascinating to see the celebration up close, but I have a feeling the city will be a buzz no matter where I am that day.

I hope to shoot some video, but Tian'anmen is closed starting tomorrow until after the celebration. The fireworks are supposed to surpass that of the Olympics...

It is great to observe somebody put enough craze towards a matter. I'm thankful that I stumbled upon this process. I am lucky I used the time to read on past the 1st paragraph. You have got a whole lot to say, very much to offer. I really hope guys understand this and look into your page.
