Beijing releases etiquette code book.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Beijing has released an Etiquette Code Book for the Olympics.

"Beijing officials have distributed 4.3 million copies of an etiquette book outlining rules on good manners and foreign customs, including rules about what not to wear. The guide is part of an effort by various departments within China's government to clean the city up in preparation for the at least 400,000 foreign visitors who are expected to descend on its capital for the Olympic Games, which start Aug. 8."

This is funny - especially since it outlines what to wear, what not to wear. Has anyone seen the official Chinese Olympic Uniforms?! They are awful. I guess that what happens when a bunch of middle aged, communist, government officials get to play fashion designer. Good lord.

Hi Emily,

Looks like your adventures are pretty earth moving. I heard there was an earthquake there this morning.

Take care,
