Our third day in Beijing was pretty incredible. I loved going to the Olympic Stadium standing in the same place of some amazing athletes. I was really surprised when I heard that the stadium isn't in use. This is when I really noticed the different between our cultures when it comes to sports. In America we are all about our sports and making these huge stadiums but they are also are used for multiple purposes. I know that the Olympic Stadium has been used for concerts and other events but it seems like not that often. In the United States we are all about our big concerts and events, especially sports. To Americans going to sporting events is a big social gathering. I have still yet to find out what the Chinese do that is equivalent to our sporting events. I think this is just a difference in our cultures; it just amazed me in a huge city like Beijing was space is very valuable they seem to waste it with something that isn't a part of their culture.
