beijing bleg

I’m off to Beijing for a week, from May 3 to May 10. Offically, I’m going to kick the tires on the state of the Olympic facilities and tour things like food inspection sites and sewage treatment plants. I’ll be looking for other stories and things to do as well, so here I am asking for help. I was last in Beijing eight years ago almost to the week, so while I’ve seen the main sites, I’ll be looking to see just how much has changed. If you have any suggestions on where to go, things to look for, stories to dig on, etc., please let me know. If you know of an art gallery or restaurant I have to visit, let me know. If you are in Beijing next week and want to try to find a TV showing hockey, drop me a line.
