All About Beijing

Q: How do you feel about the 2008 Summer Olympic Games being in Beijing, China?
It is a tradition that every country should be allowed to host and participate in.
I think they should be boycotted due to the human rights issues.

A word about air quality in Beijing: On a typical day, pollution levels in the city may be as much as five times higher than what the World Health Organization deems safe. When there is no rain or wind, ozone and fine dust accumulate. China is making attempts to clear the air, but even healthy visitors may experience sore throats and coughing. Children, the chronically ill, the elderly, and anyone who suffers from asthma face the greatest risk. If you experience symptoms, try to limit your time outdoors. And you should, of course, avoid exercising outdoors.
