The 2010 Asian Games are going to be hosted in Guangzhou, China from November 12 to November 27, 2010. Only days away from the opening ceremony, much efforts have been putting into transforming Guangzhou into the hosting city. Newly constructed venues have just been finished; equipment, infrastructures have been installed for the disabled; English translations were added to all the signs; even the Guangzhou subway is free for 30 days during the Asian Games. “Passion Guangzhou, Creative Asian Games”, recently this photo album post about the transformation of Guangzhou for the Asian Games has been circulation the net.
“Please leave your homes when it’s dark, but leave the light on”
It is reported that during the night of the Asian Games opening ceremony, Liede Villagers were told to get out of their homes but also to leave their lights on at home. “Buildings must be empty” and “lights must be on”. On November 12, in the afternoon of the Asian Games opening day, 37 buildings in Liede Village, 6000 households and their family members must leave their homes, and go to the courtyard, streets and stadium awaiting for further instructions, until 11 pm. Residents are to be paid hundreds of yuan for compensation.
The police just came to my door, gave us a set of Asian games mascot toys and three Asian Games tickets, also cash, (300 each). It looks like we are really forced to go out on the streets during the opening ceremony.
Because the subway is now free, it is way over crowed…
