Photo of the Olympic Flame on the Grand Canal
Thanks to RaleighRob for sending this link to a NY Times photo of the torch on the Grand Canal. It's at: http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/2006/01/18/sports/18olympics.650.jpg. Sorry for not making the link work--one of these days I'll figure out how to do it!
