For the next two weeks I will be glued to my TV taking in as much of the Winter Olympics as I can, the DragonFly will have to wait.
I am a huge winter sports fan, I don’t know where it comes from, I was born in Cuba and now I live in South Florida, in my younger days when my knees were in better shape, I was a decent skier; these days all I can handle is recreational cross-country skiing when ever I find myself in winter country.
I have to say that the opening ceremonies last night were the best I have ever seen, Vancouver and Canada put on a great show. I know that there is controversy about the cost of putting on the games, but I am glad that there are cities willing to take on the challenge.
I spend a few days in Vancouver five years ago, and the city won me over. What a beautiful place, of all the cities I have visited in my lifetime, it is easy on the top of my list.
