Vancouver Winter Olympics

The Winter Olympics start today, and as I am writing this I can hear the cheers from the crowds on the street outside my office and the hum of helicopters overhead. Exciting times. The city all a buzz and full of people from all over the world. I live and work downtown, so I will be able to walk to all the activities. I am sure a lot of you will be glued to your TV rooting for your Countries. This YouTube video is amazing. Sometimes I forget just how beautiful my city is.

  1. Wow....I mean, wow. Those fog images are amazing! What a fantastic reminder of the beauty you live in. If you like this, I would highly recommend the Planet Earth series that came out a few years ago. It is hours of jaw dropping beauty in this world.

  2. This is when I still lived in Seattle. The excitement must be heavy in the air and what a memory. Enjoy the thrill and have a lovely weekend. We're praying snow for Vancouver.
