Ain't No Party Like a Beijing Party

A pole dancer performs inside one of the clubs at Beijing's Sanlitun night club district, which is packed with foreigners in town to enjoy the Olympics, on August 14, 2008 in Beijing, China. The well known Sanlitun area has been cleaned up prior to the Olympic games and thrives with young people looking for a party.

They say that the only way to truly know a culture is immerse yourself in it completely. Maybe it’s just me, but does it seem like Beijing is this cardboard house built with the intention of entertaining out of town guest for an extended weekend? It’s like they (literally) swept the junk under the run hoping we wouldn’t notice. I don’t know. Seems like these “nightclubs” are awfully contrived – like those old senior photos against a “brick wall” with “graffiti” on them. Uh huh.

And pole dancing!? I thought only sluts from the United States did that. Should be an Olympic sport. Chairman Mao would not approve.
