What’s a poor graduate student to do when you can’t get tickets for the Opening Ceremony? Go to a country house of course!
A few students went to Czech House, the largest house at the PyeongChang Olympics! We enjoyed beer (their slogan is “Taste the Foam”) and watched the Opening Ceremony from the comfort and warmth of the indoors.
PyeongChang’s Opening Ceremony was beautiful and included many multimedia aspects that really came to life on the screen.
Other countries open houses during the Games to invite people to enjoy their culture and hospitality. I can’t wait to explore the others!
