Our first stop was the Olympic Superstore. It was a madhouse in there! I ended up buying a few souvenirs for friends and family back home, and then we headed to the Today Show where we saw Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto, who won a medal for ice dancing. She is even more beautiful in person, if you can believe it!!! I also saw Nancy Kerrigan trying to be incognito in Piazza San Carlo. We then headed to the Sponsor Village where we saw more ice skaters -- this time it was John Baldwin & Rena Inoue, one of the USA ice skating pairs. They were being interviewed by Campbell Brown and Lester Holt of the Today Show. We walked around and explored the city before we had to catch the train back to Rome. The Torino policemen had the best uniforms and I loved their capes, so I got a photo with two of them!
Torino was definitely my favorite city in Italy so far...the energy from the Olympics definitely made it special and it just felt magical to be in Torino.
