This week I found my contract in the post and happily signed it and sent it back. The Rio 2016 Olympics are at the doorstep and I will be able to feel the atmosphere of this intercultural event from very close. I know , I know. I shouldn’t be too dreamy about this. When I remember Beijing 2008, I remember weeks over weeks of full working days and a lot of stress to manage the communication between two very different cultures, but we humans always tend to forget the suffering and just remember the fun, which is about the many things we have learned about life while doing the job, the hundreds of nice encounters we had and the atmosphere of the small and big moments we lived. In the end you just know that all the suffering was worth it.
Now I am eight years older than the last time and surely handle some things with wisdom and tranquility. This is going to be fun!
