For the best view onto the Olympic Green you definetily have to book a room at the Morgan 7 Star Plaza in Beijing.
The building is just on the other side of the National Stadium and will be very high.
We visited the constructions site and produced a short video to give you an impression:
Here you can see a picture of the finished building:
I visited the Olympic Green, especially the Olympic Stadium and the Swimming Center. There are still many constructions going on but the buildings are getting in shape for the Olympics.
Here is a short video-clip we produced in front of the stadiums.
Chinese Internet is limited and Wikipedia is not accessible.
But I didn’t know that Google Video is also not working.
We wish you a happy and piggy chinese new year!
This is the year of the Pig. The Pig brings good luck and lots of money – isn’t this a good sign for 2007?
The celebrations in Beijing have started on saturday. Today, on Monday, we can still hear and see fireworks in the city.

I will travel to China this week to work on a couple of projects with our local chinese team. During that long stay in China I will take my fiancÃ©e and my little son Rocco with me.
We will work at the CScout Office in Beijing Central Business District and live at the Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Center until 02nd of March 2007.
I am looking forward to see the Bird’s Nest – the Olympic Stadium for the Olympic Games in 2008 again.
After almost three weeks of Beijing we will travel to Shanghai for further meetings and research.
In Shanghai we will visit the great Jin Mao Tower and the cool Hyatt Grand Hotel with its Lobby on the 54th floor and the bar at th 87th floor.
If you want to meet me in China – just send me an eMail.

The Video is called “Web 2.0 in just under 5 minutes.”

During my busy day I am attending a really cool Chat Swarm via Skype with over 75 people. There are people chatting live from the Lift Conference in Geneva. So I can follow the most interesting quote directly and can interact with the others about the topic.
