I originally wanted to write a blog post today about some of the events happening in Vancouver during the Olympics. As luck would have it Vancouver Blogger star Rebecca Bollwitt (or better known as Miss604) wrote a great Blog on the Cultural Olympiad. So with her permission here is an excerpt from her blog. Feel free to click on the link below to read it in it’s entirety.
