    Quite the marketplace…

    This crowd showed up for the Olympic Torch passing through.

    (and condolences to those caught in the Sichuan earthquake today, about 500 miles from this spot)

      China, again?!

      I admit I hate hordes and multitudes, so intimately this pics makes me feel sick and out of air...

      *gone to open the window*

      feeling better.

      ps: in Spanish is "Dónde está Wally?"

      I can visualize the pattern of movement of people as the torch passes from one location to another. The power of the torch in the age of electricity and electronics has not diminished... quite the contrary.
