It was big. It was bold. And it has got the Winter Games started.
A glittering opening ceremony has been held in Sochi with dance, music, fireworks and a journey through Russia’s history to delight the 40,000 people present.
Host President Vladimir Putin was joined by more than 40 world leaders. http://www.euronews.com/2014/02/07/winter-olympics-start-with-glittering-opening-ceremony/
Sochi is in Krasnodar Krai, Russia near the boarder between the country and Georgia/Abkhazia. It is on the Black Sea coast– that must be so magical to be in during the Olympics. Looking forward to the awarding ceremonies soon!
