    Final preparations for the 2008 Summer Olympics are in full swing in Beijing.

    This includes completing hundreds of construction projects, reconstructions, pollution controls, cultural training, and a general "beautifying" of greater Beijing. Rehearsals and drills take place daily as Chinese citizens hurry to finish up - after all, the whole world is coming soon.

    The Olympics are set to begin on August 8th. (24 photos total)
