My sister and two of my nieces are teaching English in Korea for a month, prior to a visit to Japan.

Much as I am concerned about many issues surrounding the Olympics being held in Beijing, including the usual human rights abuses, pollution, displacement of citizens, environmental disasters, etc etc etc, there is no way I am going to be able to resist watching the Olympics. I'm already starting to salivate at the thought of two weeks of spectacle.
Will you be following the Beijing Olympics?
