That’s right, Russia gets the 2014 Winter Olympics. How they beat out Salzburg and South Korea, I don’t know, and don’t want to know. But nonetheless, congrats to the mother land! Perhaps the mighty US will choose to compete this time, as some of you young ones might not know that they boycotted the 1980 summer games in Moscow.
Sochi (pronounced SO-chee) should be an interesting destination, as some call is the Riviera of Russia, while others who have likely traveled more refer to it as the Panama City of the former Soviet Union. Either way, I hope it will be a boost to this seaside city and the country as a whole. I still think it’s funny that this sunny vacation spot is getting the Winter games, when Moscow, which is much further north, got the summer games. I know, I know, close to the Caucus Mountains, better skiing and so forth. Anyway, I haven’t been there yet, but I do hope to have the opportunity!
Any comments on the logo? A little conservative but perhaps better than recently criticized London one?
Anyway, congrats again…Ya zhelau mnogo belok!!!
