Q: What's going on at the Bird's Nest these days?

Are they still making use of the stadium? If so, what's in there now? Is it worth it to go there just to check it out?

When I was there there was not a lot going on except for lots of tourists and touts selling left over souvenirs from the Olympics and rip off tours to the Great Wall. It was still worth a visit as it is an impressive structure as is the water cube and they are easily accessed from the subways line. The water cube now has a water park inside so it may be worth checking out as well.

I think they are currently using the Bird's Nest for some performances. Why don't you do a search online?

Depends on the season of the year. They have had concerts to some type of snow park during christmas. Also, one of the famous european soccer teams played beijing's team at that stadium last year. Lionel Messi's team came to Beijing and played last year.

A:Getting my second dose of Moderna in a couple weeks. This is perhaps the only benefit of being in the US now. Then I can go to one of the countries that allows vaccinated tourists. IMO, worth the wait. @Nasboroguy: The Chinese government has already admitted that their two vaccines are not as effective as they initially said. No big surprise. Now they are talking about mixing Sinopharm/Sinovac with Astrazeneca. Covid may be (barely) contained in China, but as long as the billions of people there haven't received an effective vaccine, the entire country will be at risk of continuous outbreaks such as Thailand is dealing with now. If you have access to an effective vaccine (there are a few including Pfizer, Moderna, and even Sputnik V) then I would just get it. Sure, the effectiveness will wane after a year or two, but that's what booster shots are for. Although I don't understand why people wouldn't want to get a vaccine, I respect their decision not to get it. As for myself, I feel as if a tremendous burden has been lifted and I can soon walk into a bar for a pint (just not in the US, haha). -- Quinn68
