Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.



The games are 486 days away – August 8-24, 2008.

Still, that isn’t stopping CoSport, the official U.S. Olympic Team partner, from selling hotel packages, premium ticket packages, and individual tickets to residents of the United States starting this month.

Package prices are starting at $5,000 for

1. 3- and 4-star accommodations

2. premium event tickets

3. some meals

4. ground transportation

5. tours of the city

but do NOT include airfare. Who knows what it will cost this time next year?

Mainland Chinese are able to buy tickets to some venues for as low as $4.

Expect scalpers to get a hold of them and add a couple of zeros.

There are a lot of people hoping to make a lot of money off these games.

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.

Author Bill Belew is also featured in Prachesta Magazine. Here is the Interview.

    To whom this may concern,

    Our company specializes in providing travelers with Chinese guides and interpreters to facilitate their time in Beijing and in China. As more and more people are traveling to Beijing, our services are similarly becoming increasingly required. Most notably, with the massive influx of foreigners coming to Beijing for the upcoming 2008 Olympics, our company can help to make the experience more enjoyable—a guide and interpreter at the very least prevents unnecessary stress from misunderstandings, and can potentially become a friend capable of introducing the Chinese culture.

    Further, we are currently the only translation and interpretation company in Beijing with foreign management—and as such, are the only company available that can readily and efficiently work with you should the need arise.

    If you are interested in our services, feel free to contact us.

    For more information, please refer to our website at

    (In addition to translation/interpretation services, we also provide car rental, airport pick up, emergency, and various other services to make visitors stay in Beijing as convenient as possible).

    We look forward to working with you.

    Thank you for your time.

    If you are more interested in Beijing than the Olympics per se, the best idea would be to visit before the Olympics.

  • I believe the opening and closing ceremonies are ‘sold out’ (February) but for some of the less popular sports there are still tickets available.


  • David says:

    For those that want to avoid high roaming fees on mobile phones (as high as $2.25 per minute), here’s a special site for the Olympics selling GSM SIM cards that work in your phones when traveling in Beijing.

    Unique thing about this SIM card is unlimited photo and video uploads to capture events at the Olympics on your mobile phone to share. And calling rates are much lower when using SIM card.
