Footprints On….the Olympics.

In Footprints on... on August 24, 2008 at 10:49 pm

I watched a bunch of the Olympics this year, even though I’m abhorred at the way China seems to treat its humans. Michael Phelps was great, Usain Bolt is faster than a cheetah on Red Bull, and in the dictionary under the word “Man” they should have a picture of Hugh McCutcheon. To come back from a tragedy like he did and coach his team to a gold medal requires ganas that most humans simply cannot muster in a million years.

But you know what I’ll remember most about the 2008 Olympics? The architecture. The Bird’s Nest and The Water Cube will simply go down in history as two of the most iconic structures on this planet. Beautiful, beautiful buildings:
