Welcome to Beijing
The Olympics start on Friday and I’m getting in the spirit! I love the way that Chinese history and tradition is being worked into the modern games. The “Fuwa” embody the spirit of the Olympic games, each representing different characteristics through China’s favorite animals. Together their names spell “Welcome to Beijing.” Read more about the official Olympic mascots here. (Past Olympic mascots here).

I was just in Taipei this weekend, and these little guys were EVERYWHERE- on t-shirts, little kids’ hats, toys. Despite all the problems between Taiwan and China, it seemed no one here was having trouble getting into Olympic spirit. Then again, give something a cute mascot, and it’ll surely be a hit in Taiwan. -X
