Pyeongchang 2018

The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver has just ended, and now we’re looking forward to Sochi 2014. Kim Yuna and Asada Mao will be 23 years old by that time. Will they still be there to compete? Let’s see.
Four hundred ninety-one days (491) from now, we’ll learn which country (or city) will host the 2018 Winter Olympics. This is the third (or is it the fourth?) time that Pyeongchang, a city in Gangwon-do will vie for the privilege of hosting the games. I hope they would be successful this time. Hosting the Olympics would mean improvements to the city and it would be exciting to be here when that happens. The city has Kim Yuna as one of its supporters for the bid. The city has a website but the English page is still under construction.
Hopefully, the Olympic Committee will choose Pyeongchang. I want to see improvements to the traffic situation along Yeongdong Expressway. There was a heavy traffic on that expressway yesterday when 40 cm of snow fell in Gangwon-do. Thankfully, we didn’t travel or else! A few cars also had accidents in that area yesterday as the roads were pretty slippery because of the snow. The good thing is there are cheap car insurance that motorists could avail themselves of just in case unpleasant things happen.
Anyway, this might be my last post about the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. It was exciting and memorable. Thank you Vancouver!
