Winter Olympic in Vancouver!


The above photo sums up how I spent most of August, 2008. This was the tail end of our stage (training) and we spent a lot of time at Chez Pierre's in Bangangté watching the Summer Olympic in China!

I love the Olympics! And this is why I didn't hesitate when Team USA contacted me to see if I would write something about the Winter Olympic in Vancouver that's starting this Friday on my blog. They need some support because the sad Winter Olympic gets only a fraction of the coverage compare to the mighty Summer Olympic games.

I know we all prefer the sun over the snow, but there is something pretty nifty about the winter games amongst the white fluffy snow. Perhaps I'm just a bit nostalgic for winter weather since I've been living in Africa for 2 years. And besides, these athletes also spent their whole life training for the games, they deserve some attention, right? I never get into those major league sports in the USA. Last night's Superbowl did not interest me one bit, but I do love the Olympic games, and this is my way of showing a little support, and hope you will, too!

Ah, I love the olympics too... unfortunately I won't be able to catch many of the events here. Will you be able to see anything over there?
PS - We will definitely have to meet up sometime in London. I plan on being back soon... :)

I have truly enjoyed your blog. Did you read any material concerning marketing your blog or do you have any tips on increasing traffic to a blog. I am applying for the Peace Corps this year, and any advice or resources would help.

Thanks :D
