Pleasanton residents Wayne and Karen Couto have had a whirlwind past few days in Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
They brought a copy of the Weekly newspaper to the opening ceremonies last Friday, taking in the special performances. Then, they headed out to Whistler to watch the men's luge event.
"We love the Olympic spirit of peace and competition and have always wanted to attend," Wayne Couto said via email from Vancouver. "We had been to Vancouver and Whistler on our first vacation as a couple, so this was the perfect opportunity."
