Steps Down - Stadio Olimpico111 viewsNo handrail for stability. This was taken from our row, looking down (note the large curtain that blocked our view). Another disabled spectator is helped down from her seat. I had to wait until most people had left, and then went down the stairs one at a time. It was pretty awful.

The Path to the Ticket Booth, Stadio Olimpico76 viewsAs incredible as it seems, this was the path to the ticket booth for the opening ceremony of the Torino Winter Olympics. The booth, in a porta-cabin in the Piazza d'Armi, could only be found via a small A4 paper sign, written only in Italian, nailed to a small stake. The Olympic Stadium is only about 50 meters to the right of this photograph. This was taken the day before the opening ceremony.

Steps Up - Stadio Olimpico82 viewsThis photograph was taken when I actually got back down to the bottom. Marjorie's and my seats were in row 11, virtually at the top of this photograph. With no hand rail, and my right foot in a boot/cast, I had to be helped up these steep and scary steps by two other spectators. A pretty humiliating experience.

Before the Opening Ceremony - 2006 Winter Olympics89 viewsThe view from our seat at one end of the Stadio Olimpico, before the ceremonies began. In addition to the problems I had climbing to our seats, our view was obstructed by the large scaffolding -- and virtually all of the show took place at the other end of the Stadio.

Opening Ceremony - 2006 Winter Olympics99 viewsStrange legs coming through the floor of the Stadio Olimpico. The fabric "floor" was ultimately removed, and this is where the athletes sat during the second half of the ceremony.

Opening Ceremony - 2006 Winter Olympics79 viewsI'm not quite sure what this dance meant -- the one girl in the middle looks pretty confused as well.

The Olympic Rings69 viewsOr, rather, most of them. Our complete view of the large Olympic rings at the other side of the Stadio was obstructed by scaffolding.
