Chinese citizens and government workers have been preparing for months for their upcoming celebration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on October 1st. Collected here are images from the past several weeks of people around China preparing to celebrate their National Day. Some of them are really impressive… and I like the haircut much…:)

I believe I will be surprised again by the formal celebration on 1st Oct. if I have chance to look at it… Just like the opening of 2008 Summer Olympics. China is a great country, at least at this point… They do make something really amazing…
