Only 4 days to go to the Olympics


Yes things are really speeding up around here. I have been very busy at the Olympic Village here in Vancouver as the teams are arriving and everyone is getting ready. I work at one of the service desks for the building where the athletes are staying and there is so much to do to get them settled in. Do you know that the average athlete has 5 or 6 pieces of luggage!! We had a small group arrive this morning from one country and they had 108 pieces of luggage and one of the elevators was down. It was challenge getting them up to their floors with our one poor little elevator.
One of the really neat things in the village is the moose. He is set up to look like he is strolling through the streets, which kind of reaffirms our rural roots. He is kind of goofy looking but loveable and a major hit on the site. I was working in the building next to him the other day and I could not believe the number of people that were stopping to have their picture taken with him. So here I am outside one of the Canada team buildings with our moose. Have a good a good day.
