So the "Two Meetings" were kicked off this week which means a heightened police presence in the capital and one gets the feeling that this is sort of a small scale dress rehearsal for the Olympics. When I first noticed the large number of cops and also soldiers hanging around my neighborhood and the cops now positioned along 2nd Ring Rd, it didn't really register at first, but then seeing the Christmas lights on around Tiananmen, it quickly hit me that it was "Two Meetings" time.

Oh well, its business as usual around here at A Modern Lei Feng, though it was interesting coming across a large contingent of police cars and plain clothes cops hanging around early Tuesday morning awaiting orders in a spot usually filled by Mercedes and BMWs.
