Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

The general public watching the olympics next month are going to be shocked when they see this from helicopter shots!

It's going to be a big talking point i'm sure

I think they are working some days the sky looks really clear but maybe not that day. Anyways at least they finished the cladding and with a good clean it would be enough to look fantastic.

there's no way they can use it for broadcasting. I only hope they have enough time to remove the cranes and clean up the construction site.

I have the same feeling. That one is a hotel and it seems pretty new so it may not be demolished in a while

I think that it would be great to have an office on the
bottom floor of the overhanging section.
Bored at work?
look straight down through the glass floor (if it was glass),
just like the CN Tower!

Great building, well done Beijing, just in time for the big show!

They probably won't be bored at work with all the programming they have to make, but the floor is designated for offices anyway, there is no public observation deck unfortunately.
