I went to the games with some of my other friends; my German exchange student friend, and two of the two other German au pairs who were in my Finnish class. It was nice and worked out well. It was so nice seeing foreigners around though. There were many Russians, and also people from Poland and Germany, etc. I just love when there are all of the flags flying high in the stadium though, it's one of my favorite sights.
I also entered a team spirit contest, but since I was the only American, I was my own team. It was still good though, being able to cheer and show my spirit.
From one of the three ski jumps, a snowmobile rider did a flip and came down into the stadium, starting off the finale featuring fireworks. It was really the perfect ending to the night standing there with my friends watching the beautiful fireworks light up the night skies. It was such a great competition! Go USA!
