Picture of the Day: Third Anniversary

Lighting up the sky with fire

Can you believe it's been three years since the Opening Ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics?

I still vividly remember being on top of the Ling Long Pagoda and watching the amazing fireworks display around us. It was absolutely deafening and awe inspiring.

As Napoleon famously said: "Let China sleep, for when she wakes, she will shake the world."

The Middle Kingdom definitely did so August 8, 2008 with a big bang.
