Photographer's Note

I walked around the Olympic Park during one hour, trying to enter in the place, in Beijing it is usual they close the public spaces with fences and many controls. The day was almost finishing when I found the gate. There was a big youth event at side of the stadium of Bird's Nest.
After a fast view I walked to the next subway station, but it was closed and I was afraid to walk more than 6 km to my hotel, but the next station was open, but when I asked to buy a ticket the girl in the cabin became in panic and asked for the help of her chief who understood what I wanted, because in China it is rare who talk in English and in subway they want to know the station and the line at same time before to buy a ticket..

Caminhei ao redor do Parque Olmpico por uma hora at encontrar o porto de entrada, em Pequim comum eles fecharem os locais pblicos com cercas e controles. Cheguei ao local do Estdio do Ninho de Pssaro j no final do dia e l havia um evento com milhares de jovens.
Fiquei pouco tempo e sa para a estao de metr mais prxima, mas ela estava fechada e temi ter que caminhar seis km at o meu hotel. Contudo, a prxima estao estava aberta, mas ao comprar o bilhete a mocinha entrou em pnico, pois no sabia ingls, e foi chamar a chefe. L a gente tem que saber o nome da linha e da estao para poder comprar o bilhete.
