Winter Olympics

Is anyone else following the Winter Olympics? Reminds me of my second month in York learning about snowboard cross, speedskating, and how much the Dutch love speedskating.

Erik, it seems the Dutch have a large presence in speedskating but not much of one in short track. Why is this the case?

Four years ago we were sitting in the lounge (or lobby, family room -what did we call it?). Remember the Top Gear Winter Olympics specials? The Mini ski-jump and racing the bobsled were my favorites.

And of course we ended our stay in York with the World Cup. Can't wait!
