Great practice this afternoon. The floor is volley ball style teroflex. Good thick court markings and a regulation net. Some of the nets in the states have a crossbar underneath that can be a little bit of a tripping hazard, but these nets do not have the crossbar underneath. China has really put out the welcome mat for the paralympic athletes. There are billboards and flags every half mile or so on the freeway. The paralympic mascot and paralympic flag is everywhere. Eevem the covers that lead to the seuwer system have the paralympic symbols and 2008 embossed on them. I started tradeing pins at dinner. Got an israel paralympic fencing team pin- that one is for you beth. Also traded for 2 chinese pins and one from japan. Pin tradeing is a lot of fun!!
