Switzerland 20 May: Lausanne

an Olympic experience

Good morning Lausanne!

A very lively school in Lausanne greets us in their morning break.

Our Portuguese runner addresses the excited crowd in his perfect French.

Run run run run run!

The famous flying Finn - Nurmi - greets us outside the Olympic Museum.

The Olympic Museum in Lausanne.

Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympics.

Officials from the Museum greet us and offer us free entry to this extraordinary and most inspiring place.

One of the Olympic torch designs, the one from Sochi.

Each torch has it's own unique character and style.

...we equalized the world record in high jump...

...historic pictures...

Olympic skaters from yesteryear - but somehow the faces are familiar.

Our day ends at the Vegelateria in Zurich - check out the vegan ice cream!

Cheers!

Our hosts at the Vegelataria, Pradatta and Kedar, hold the torch.
