Sochi Winter Olympics Preview 2014

Well, Well, Well. It is time for the Winter Olympics to get started again.
The Olympic Torch has been almost every were this time around.
Fourteen thousand people are taking part the event.
The travel is by foot, plane, train, automobile,(isn't that a movie) snowmachine, icebreaker, jet pack, zip wire, sleigh, horse and by a camel to name a few.
