Read an interesting article about the Chinese - there is a resteraunt chain in China that went smoke free and it has lost 80% of its patrons. Chinese are very heavy smokers ands apparently spit everywhere. They also do not stand in lines...The jest of the article was about the government trying to educate it's people on these subjects before the Olympics came, but was not having much luck...

Smoking looks like a cultural thing in China-- http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/06123/686910-294.stm

It will be really interesting to see pictures about life in China while the Olympics is going on. Think it runs from August 8 through August 24, 2008.
