2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games, from 02/09 to 02/24/2002

For me, certainly the Games where the enthusiasm was not really at the rendezvous. If shortly after the attacks of 11 September 2001, it was difficult, perhaps the Mormon spirit somewhat austere has not helped to bring some notes fantasies. My stay in youth hostel: deplorable because expensive with the unpleasant impression of being hijacked for the service provided. Major US flaw: business is business and it becomes anything.

Day 12 – 21 February

Following a security alert, the neighborhood where the collectors’ Olympic fair is being held is cordoned off and denied access by police and firefighters. A simple stink ball seems to be at the origin of this deployment of forces.
