NI HAO from Beijing!

I arrived in Beijing on 18 July but I was unable to post anything until right now, when I'm at a Starbucks coffee near the Workers' Stadium.

In only my second day in this incredible city, I met the little fellow that's pictured next to me in the picture above and I didn't hesitate to take a picture to capture that moment. The back of his shirt said: MESSI and I think it serves as a message to FC Barcelona! China wants to see MESSI! MESSI wants to come to China! Come on, Barcelona! Get your act together!

Anyway...let's forget about it for a second.

I want to let you know that this city is completely ready for the Olympics. The locals are incredibly nice and they make you feel at home wherever you go. I think they have 5 volunteers for each visitor! I'm exagerating here, but I can assure you the volunteers are always smiling and doing their best to help you with anything.

I've had many conversations with a lot of people about Argentina and football in Argentina and there's no doubt the Albicelestes are one of the darlings of the Chinese football fans.

I hope I can give you regular updates on my experience in China.

I have to sign out now, but I'll be back soon!

Before I leave, though, I thought I'd share another picture with you with yet another young fan of the Albicelestes (but please, don't make any comments about my pants! hahaha!)

This blog could be more exciting if you can create another topic that everyone can relate on.
