Olympreparations, cont'd...

Well, it was my first day official Olympic work day, and with the torch relay meandering through East Vancouver, the busses were tangled and unreliable, so I walked (90 minutes) to the PNE. On the way, near the Village, I saw the Audi's that Yuko had mentioned were provided by Audi for the German athletes. I thought she meant Audi Canada, but these are Audi from Germany!

The ice was still in use for practice, but that would soon end. I'm part of the group in blue, between the cameras and the big flat screen.

The HD cameras are huge. And some are special high speed frame rate, from which they played back wipeouts is incredible slow motion detail.

We even have a newly cast Olympic bell!
