Travel Photo of the Day 07-27-2012

Bird’s Nest and Cube – Beijing, China

The Cube

Bird’s Nest

Since today is the opening day of the 2012 London Olympics, it is appropriate for today’s travel photo to fit the Olympic theme. As I went through my photos I realized that we have visited more Olympic locations than  I thought. In 2008 the Summer Olympics were held in Beijing. In order to host the games, China undertook massive infrastructure projects to provide first-rate venues to host the events. The Bird’s nest was the  stadium where the opening and closing ceremonies were held, as well as all of the track and field events. The Cube was the swimming and diving venue where Michael Phelps won his record-setting 8 gold medals.
