The 70th anniversary of founding of our nation is a huge production. It reaches every realm of lives in Beijing.

The subways and roads are constantly closed, rather randomly I think: at about 8:00 pm I got off from #14 at Yongdingmen station, which means Eternal Peace Gate Station.

There are security personnel everywhere … I had to change many times to get to my destinations, from subway (Metro) to bus then back to subway.

People are watching the celebrations in the movie theaters …

Some the jokes or facts that has been making the rounds:

  1. 念好吧!昨晚老石约饭局,其中一朋友家住长安街(父辈为高干)五居室,其中一室的窗户临长安街,最后彩排前,不仅他家人不能住那屋,还安排一警察住进那临街的屋,他家人说,不愿生人用卫生间,没用!一直得住到节后!全家人崩溃!太无法想象!家里平空住进一警察!这都是什么事啊!
  2. 这是我一个老同学昨天在群里说的~~今天早上有一个交往多年的妹妹来找我聊天,其中就聊到70年大庆上,她家住在南池子。昨晚她爱人出门遛弯,随身带上身份证已经一个多月了,等回来时有一路口把他截住检查完身份证后又让他记住一个口令”交道口”,才能通过。等他走到家门口的那条胡同,又检查了一遍身份证然后问口号,他说”交道口”才让他回家。她说完给我逗的,这不跟搞地下工作的接头暗号呢。这也不知谁想出来了高招,而且会更换。70年大庆这动靜,我的亲娘哎,这阵子哪也别去了,指不定就回不了家了。
