I went to Los Angeles a few months ago. Tried to get my picture taken in front of the Coliseum, but it was blocked off for some sort of festival.

I've visited Centennial Olympic Park and Turner Field in Atlanta, and have been to Rome and Paris.

Lived south of LA most of my life and went to a USC/Notre Dame football game at the Coliseum in, what, about 1987?

Was actually staying at the hotel where the IOC was being feted by ACOG in an attempt to win the Games for Atlanta in 1990.

Thus so far, that's all.

Going over the list of host cities I've been to all except Chamonix and St Moritz. I've even been to bloody Lake Placid, Sarajevo and visited Sochi back in the late 90's.

Congratulation, you are our champion ! But it's a shame you missed Chamonix... it is one of the most beautifull place in the world.... But you will come here in 2018 :rolleyes:
