My Hometown-Liuzhou

MY HOMETOWN:Located on the banks of the winding Liu River, Liuzhou is a major industrial and cultural center. This prosperous city of 3.4 million population is located in southern China. It's about 175 km from Guilin, the most scenic spot in Guangxi province.Liuzhou is famous among Chinese for the production of wooden coffins and for being the hometown of legendary Olympic gold medal gymnast Li Ning.Like Cincinnati, Liuzhou¡¯s focal point is a "fountain square" in the center of the city.

Liuzhou, also known as the "Dragon City," was founded 2,100 years ago. As the ancient gateway to Cathay, it was the end of the Silk Road over which Marco Polo traveled on his way to see the Great Khan.

Scenic Liuzhou is becoming a tourist center. Its towering "karst¡¯ hills and many caves add breathtaking beauty to this historically significant region. Liuzhou¡¯s "minority village" duplicates the distinctive lifestyles of Liuzhou¡¯s minority nationalities. As home to twenty-six nationalities, Liuzhou¡¯s blend of people and culture is diverse and rich.

Liuzhou was honored as Cincinnati¡¯s first Sister City in May 1988. From late 1990 through 1991 the Liuzhou Sister City Committee hosted a Chinese Minority Costume and Textiles Exhibit. The costumes were shared with Cincinnatians at city festivals and special exhibitions. A variety of additional exchanges are being planned for the future.

I believe you would enjoy life in Liuzhou.Welcome to Liuzhou!

The Logo for the BeiJing 2008 Olympic Games

Beijing 2008 Emblem Theme
Behind every symbol, there is a story. This is the story of a country opening its gates to the future. The story of a city reaching out to embrace all humanity. The story of a people inviting the world to join their dance, experience their culture, and share their joy. This is Dancing Beijing: the symbol of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

The Journey Dancing Beijing is the journey to the future. As the emblem for China's journey toward the 2008 Olympic Games, Dancing Beijing reveals the heart of an ancient culture embracing the modern world, the spirit of a people moving toward a new destiny. Dancing Beijing captures the soul of a city in transformation, a nation on the move. Its motion conveys a message of hope, an invitation to joy and a promise of unity.

The Promise Dancing Beijing is the seal of the nation. The Chinese seal has remained the standard of commitment in Chinese culture for thousands of years, serving as a signature and personal pledge. Dancing Beijing is the seal of the 2008 Olympic Games---the promise Beijing makes to the world to stage an Olympic Games unlike any the world has known. A promise rooted in honor and trust, character and truth.

The Image Dancing Beijing is the signature of the city. For over 5,000 years, the ancient Chinese art form of calligraphy has expressed the grace and character of the Chinese people, the charm and beauty of its traditions. Inspired by the ancient figure for Beijing, the new image of China's Olympic quest turns the city into a dancing athlete, beckoning a cultural exchange between East and West. In the graceful sweep of the calligrapher's hand, the image of a New Beijing is born.

The Beauty Dancing Beijing is the color of China. Red is the most significant color in Chinese culture---the most enchanting. The depth of its meaning equals the depth of its beauty. Red breathes life into Dancing Beijing. Its energy is unceasing. It is celebration, luck and new beginnings.

The Hero Dancing Beijing is the spirit of the individual. It is the symbol for every Olympian, every performer, every volunteer and every spectator---everyone who will dance at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. In its magical mix of sport and culture, Dancing Beijing celebrates the athlete's effort and the artist's vision. Arms flung wide, Dancing Beijing invites the world to share in the city's history, its beauty, its energy, its future.

The Spirit Dancing Beijing is the form of the dragon---just as the dragon's sinuous curves and dynamic nature reflect the ancient beauty and majesty of Chinese culture. In its fluid arcs, Dancing Beijing binds the past to the future, the power to the promise, the art to the athlete. The fire and light of a people, the boundless spirit of a nation are wrapped in its curves.

The Invitation Dancing Beijing is an invitation---a hand extended to welcome the world to China for a celebration destined to unite humanity as never before. For the world's largest nation, the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games are the ultimate gesture of friendship, a global expression of hope that the community of nations will dance with Beijing and join its dream of a world united in peace through sport.

Dancing Beijing The emblem of the celebration that is coming.
