Opening ceremonies for the 2010 Winter Olympics are Friday, February 12…. in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada… with closing ceremonies on February 28.

  36. Hi Susan,
    I had forgotten the Olympics were starting so soon. Guess you can tell I'm not a big fan of the sporting world! Ah well, the pictures you shared make me want to hop in a plane and spend some time in Vancouver, sports or not!
    Have a great week.
