Beijing Olympics Begins Today: 8/8/08
The Beijing National Stadium, also affectionately dubbed the “bird's nest,” will host the opening and closing ceremonies tonight as well as the track and field stadium for the 2008 Summer Olympics. I posted a while back about a finely-made metal model of the stadium. I also found other building replicas of the bird’s nest ranging from the interesting to the bizarre. Included are: a keychain with stadium fob, an ashtray, a plastic MP3 speaker and a lighter in the shape of the stadium. Do you know of other olympic building souvenirs?
