The Bird's Nest Stadium, and the Water Cube

The area from the Beijing 2008 Summer Olympics is still very popular with visitors.  The Bird's Nest Stadium is very impressive - just as expected from the TV coverage.  This area of the city is vast, and seems even bigger as all the main roads in and around it are now just for pedestrians, which looks odd, as all the over-head road signs are still there.

Quite a lot of police, I noticed.
