China: Olympics fatigue

It's one thing to say that people in Beijing and other places around the country are getting tired of the disruptions the Olympics have brought, but Xiao Qiang at China Digital Times translates a Sohu blogger's post which outlines just what some of those disruptions are.

    I have to admit that … the Olympics are not even ON yet, and I am already tired of them!.

    And it has nothing to do with the whole idea of what the Olympics were made for, it has more to do with the whole expectation and desire of the Chinese Government to look so good in front of the world’s eyes.

    My question is.. .yeah ok you will be seen for millions, but then what?, what will happen with the people who stopped working or the trade and commerce that you blocked just to occupy your time in such a selfish adventure of showing the rest that “you can do it”. I can only feel sorry for the people who will suffer the consequences after everything is over.

    I read the article, quite interesting, and you see? those type of news, are not shown in the rest of the world.

    Ty for sharing your space with us.
