So here's the deal: I'm heading to Beijing for the 2008 Summer Olympics and I'm going to make a valiant effort to actually blog about my experiences. And maybe post some photos, too.
It won't be as clever or as topical as Paul's blog, but what the heck. If I can conquer my writing phobia then I'll consider this a success.
We leave on Monday, off to our adventure.
This will be my 12th Olympics -- Los Angeles, Calgary, Seoul, Albertville, Barcelona, Lillehammer, Atlanta, Nagano, Sydney, Salt Lake City and Athens -- but my first on site, so I'm pretty excited.
If I can see one event (I think my press credential will confine me to the media center) I'll be thrilled. My other goals: The Forbidden City, The Great Wall and lots of dumplings.
Off we go ...
