When is the Turin Olympics?

Some silly questions:

1) When is the Turin Olympics going to take place this year?

2) I remember hearing a while back that this is an Olympics that is mainly in Italy but also in Austria. Is this still true?

Competitions will take place in Turin/Torino and in a number of resorts scattered all over the province - alpine ski in Sestriere and surrounding area, cross-country, biathlon in Pragelato, freestyle in Sauze d'Oulx, bobsleigh in Bardonecchia and so on...

And curling in Pinerolo
Bah, who'd want to go there
J/K Good luck to Torino and whole Italy with their olympic games, let's hope María José Rienda gives Spain a gold medal in Giant slalom

Shhht... they don't want too many tourists over there
Apparently curling tickets are the closest to being sold out... while there are still many available for other disciplines such as hockey - and it doesn't surprise me, since for the final they ask about 500 €
María José es muy maja y me gustaría que pudiese ganara una medalla... seguro que será una batalla con la Kostelic, la Paerson y todas esas que fisícamente son dos veces más grandes...

I can't wait for the Olympics but I'm a bit pissed off that I'll miss the second week (and the Ladies ice-skating!!!) cause I'm going back to Florida for a couple of weeks. Meh! I missed most of the Athens Olympics for the same reason.
