Vancouver is definitely ready for Olympic Games – lots of new modern art
Thou some art as an art for Olympic games is questionable – at least for me.
Lots of art related to Indian tribes – Canadians are very keen on highlighting achievements of native people.
Reminds me about monument to Stalin’s repression by Shemyakin in St. Petersburg opposite Kresti Prison.
It was sunny and much warmer than we expected in Vancouver. Truly nice day for PNW.
Contienets made from recycled material. Sustainability and environment was one of the major theme of the Olympic Games.
Olympic Village where all athletes live while in Vancouver. More than 90 countries participated in Winter Olympic Games.
Russian House was housed in Vancouver Science Museum.
Line to get into Russky Dom in Vancouver. There were a quite a few Russians in a queue.
Model of Sochi with all planned Olympic stadiums and slopes
Some new stadiums in Sochi will be disassembled after the game and moved to other cities in Russia
Funny that Volkswagen put Russian language ads in Vancouver.
Guess who I met at Russki Dom – Steven Colbert from Colbert Report. He is one of the most well-known TV comic.
Most sponsors of Olympic games in Russia are state-owned or state-affiliated companies.
Just look at General Partners.
After we left Russki Dom, we saw people flocking to Canada-Switzerland Hockey game.
To warm up, I got a cup of latte at Blenz coffee – Canadian Starbucks.
There were way more people in the evening on the streets than in the morning.
Ain’t I a great snowboarder?
Vancouver at night is always majestic and beautiful.
