Heaven: I was one of the very few foreigners selected to be in the National Day Parade, along with my wife. Many of my friends, all over the world, saw me thanks to my clever choice of a red Chinese jacket.
Hell: Beijing needs all citizens to make more efforts to safeguard our environment.

Being courteous and law abiding would make traffic more efficient, reduce car pollution and reduce our daily stress.
