A few funny treats included dinner at the Black Cafe (100% pitch black dark restaurant where you are served by blind people), Ryan finding a Chinese medicinal store in the fresh fish section of Hong Kong that sold starfish by the bin-load, meeting Al Roker and being on the Today Show, and Ryan wearing a gold medal.
The best part of the trip was that an unbelievable number of Chinese people treated Ryan like a rock star, literally tens of people at a time clamoring to simply take a photo with him (pictures below).  The pack of Koreans at the Great Wall were particularly funny.  What can we say...HE IS CUTE!
Outside the "Nest"
This was simply an amazing trip.  We've added a lot of pictures here, but we were fortunate enough to have a very complete trip.  Highlights include:  Being featured on the Today Show, meeting current and former Olympians (saw Michael Phelps!), going to the Great Wall, attending track & field, table tennis, diving, volleyball & football events, attending a party overlooking the Olympic Village with a Kung Fu demonstration, going to an amazing aquarium in Shanghai, and even getting married again for the 15th time!
