Passion still lives here 4 years on.
Today the world's attention turns to Vancouver and their Winter Olympic games, as well it should, but naturally for us the memory of one of the best two weeks, I mean actually more like a month when you add in the Paralympics, which were a lot of fun also, for our valley and us, turns back in retrospect.
The flame has come and gone on to Vancouver 2010
But here are a few images of our 2006 ones
from our Val Chisone and Val Susa
and of course, Torino
Sestriere, Men and Women's Downhill
Pragelato Ski Jump
and the celebrating
And what would the games be with out the fans and innkeepers!
Thanks for the wonderful memories
Forza Vancouver 2010
And Forza Azzurri!!!

If you want more photos I have a long version photo album of the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics, where the photos are contributed by the many people we met and some that stayed with us during the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics on Picassa here.
