Bird’s Nest and Water Cube

2/17  line 8, Olympic Sports Center stop, exit  B1 or B2

We left the WIs and headed two subway stops south of Olympic Forest Park and got out to see the Bird’s Nest and Water Cube up close. Officially, they are named National Stadium and Beijing National Aquatics Center. These are from the 2008 Olympics.

The picture of Buddy and Little Guy on the road… that’s the road the Beijing ePrix took place on.

We bought a bubble wand for Y10 (less than $2) and played with it while we walked back toward the subway stop. Then we attracted a crowd of Chinese tourists wanting pictures of us with their kids, so we had to move on more quickly.
