Great Wall Billboard

Despite any qualms the Chinese may have over foreign commercialization of culturally sensitive areas, they seem to have no qualms over tooting their own horn. This sign for the 2008 Olympics is visible from nearly every part of the Badaling section of the Great Wall.

While it tends to mar the pristineness of the area, it leaves no doubt that the Chinese are not going to let any marketing opportunities for the Olympics go unexploited.
