On my first day in Beijing I uploaded a video of me stepping off the plane. I blogged it here. I’ve been told in conversation that a few videos on the blog during my trip to Beijing would be a great idea. However, the only comment (so far) is from an apparent local who’s not thrilled about my coverage:

“To tell you the truth, people like you are not welcome in China. We dont like your type.”
Youtube user

Ouch! I guess the “Make Olympic Guests Feel Warm and Bring Hearts Closer Together” advertising campaign I’ve been seeing in Chinese television hasn’t won over everybody.
