Dusk and night skylines under west mountain ...

That was happiness then.

The opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games staged here on Friday night has caught nearly 4 billion people's eyes worldwide.
A dream-come-true resonance that longed for a hundred years and prepared for 84 months is giving millions of reasons to Chinese to have a sleepless night.
Chinese President Hu Jintao declared open the 29th summer Olympic Games of Beijing in the National Stadium in north Beijing on Friday night.
Thundering cheers rocked the full-packed stadium, while splendid fireworks lit up the city skyline.

Thumbs up

Vayaa...impactante ciudad, me llama la atención el enorme despliegue de arquitectura de edificios en altura y las utilizadas en espacios deportivos, con las obras tradicionales de la cultura china....como alguien dijo por ahi es una ciudad transformers....me ha dejado sin palabras.
