EDITOR’S NOTE: We are very excited to share the travels of Simi Hamilton’s family to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing dispatches from Ruthie Brown and family as they give you a first-hand, “behind-the-scenes” look at the Olympics.
Enjoyed Istanbul! After a city tour and several boats rides, we're set to check in for our evening flight into Sochi, 1:30 am arrival time - kind of a dramatic way to enter the country. Only in Russia. We have learned that there are 6 Turkish athletes, 2 alpine skiers, a figure skating pair and 2 nordic athletes that we will make an effort to cheer on!
