|The tails of three dragon boats, waiting along the shore before the races begin. Dragon boat racing is an ancient sport, and will be featured as an exhibition sport at the Beijing Olympics.
I fully admit to the likelihood of having totally butchered the Chinese title. It should mean "Quiet Morning Dragon Boat" but could be something completely off the wall like "Martians Burnt My Shoelaces" for all I know. (Actually, I do know that "longzhou" is "dragon boat". The rest I left up to an online Chinese to English dictionary.)
