Thank you for the article. I’ll be reading it this afternoon and I’m sure it’ll be a very useful lesson. As for the Olympic Games: I liked the opening very much. Unfortunately, I missed the closing ceremony.
I’ve watched many very exciting competitions and there were a few really emotional moments. It is always great to see people fulfill their dreams. Somehow the games also made me want to do more sports again myself.

Same here. Can’t even get on a ladder without freaking out
Strangely enough though I don’t have problems when hiking in the mountains (unless you want me to look down into a gorge). The hightest I’ve been to so far was 5,600 metres (getting close to the peak of the Chimborazo in Ecuador).
@evgueny40 - I’m sorry I was unable to read your article, evgueny, but I thought the games were highly successful and my Husband & I thoroughly enjoyed it all. We especially liked the curling, so very tactical. The ice-skating also was wonderful. A highly successful games, but such a shame it had to be so costly!
