Thu, May 8 - from China: The Olympic torch in Shenzhen

The Olympic torch (well, one of the two: the other one just made it to Mt. Everest) came through Shenzhen today, and passed by the FIYTA High-Tech Building where Oracle's office is located. It was a sunny and clear but hot day out there while we waited for the arrival of the torch. Crowds lined the streets. Eventually I found a nice spot to take pictures: on the roof of a bus; the bus driver was nice enough to let me inside and climb through the roof door on top. And then it was like during a bike race: you come out hours before anything will happen, and then within a minute it's all over.
