Over the years I’ve never had any real interest in any Olympic games, whether the summer or winter games, let alone sit and watch them on television. Lately the upcoming winter games being held in Sochi, Russia have peaked my interest. In some sort of way part of me would love to actually travel to Russia in order to witness the spectacle in person. The reality of it is I just can’t and for many reasons.
Over several years I have the opportunity to make some wonderful friends through the blogosphere who live in Russian. Some of these friends happen share some of the same interests of mine. My friend Valeriya who lives in Moscow was kind enough to bring the games home here to me. Valeriya sent me three 2014 Sochi, Russia Winter Olympic souvenir postcards. I am very grateful to her for the thought.
