Commonwealth Games 2010

This is a hoarding that has been placed on a bus stop. I liked this photo because of the nonchalant man, who like majority of the Delhites has no idea of Games being announced by the hoarding or when they will be held. Even as the world is preparing for the Beijing Olympics, Delhi Government is busy preparing for the Commonwealth Games 2010. The whole city is undergoing a transformation with huge sites being turned into stadiums specially for the games. I sure do hope that India puts up a fantastic show and makes the long hours in traffic worth the while. :-)

Staging international events such as the Olympics or Commonwealth Games is an horrendous challenge for any city. Vancouver, Canada, which is only about 120 miles north of Seattle, is going through huge growing pains readying for the Winter Olympics.

I'm guessing the word "hoarding" means posting, or billboard?

Yes Chuck,

We call the billboards hoardings in this part of the world.

We are very aware Down Under of Delhi 2010. I know a few people personally who are looking very much forward to competing in India, knowing how keen people there are on sport.
