 The fan-favorite figure skating events of the Winter Olympics will take place within the “Iceberg” Skate Palace. These new buildings are all “in the City”. Never saw.

    It is going to be so exciting to see the Sochi Olympics after being there just 2 1/2 years ago. Even now I see the news and get excited when they show the village, the mountains, the ski lift……and the Great Russian Food!!!!!!!
