I have been living in BC for 2 years, and before I came to Canada, I had barely watched barely a few winter olympics games. However, I went to the oval to see speed skating games on tuesday. First of all, the oval is in Richmond, and it takes from, approximately, 25 min. from downtown by Canada line. The line ups are really long, but because there are an adequate number of trains, passangers don't wait so long. After getting off the train, you have to walk for about 1.5 km to get there. Secondly, on your way to walk there, everything, the accessible washrooms, different sculptures to get photos and so on, has been orginased quite well. Finally, the facility is really wonderfull. There is so many thigns to do inside of it. You can take a photo with the olympic mascots or RCMP members, if you are not from Canada. Also, the olympics souveniers are obtainable inside and outside.
To sum up, it was really different experience for me, and I firmly believe that everybody should experience these kinds of activities in his/her life. Although it is believed that the Olympics had caused a huge debt, we can also say that it brought so much fun, passion, and enthusiasm to Vancouver. Have fun during the Olympics.
