When I watch the Sochi Winter Olympics, I often think of the Athletes that comes from countries without almost no or no snow at all. I find it interesting that there are countries with sand, beaches and palm trees that participate. Here I have found some.

Now, before you make up any conclusions on that some of these countries does have snow sometimes and some does have mountains which are high enough. I list up countries that a Norwegian wouldn’t think of as a place with winter in it.
Another note here is that there are other countries in Africa and Asia which isn’t participating at all, even they could do it I think. Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt, South Africa etc. I also wish that more of the smaller countries came to the Olympic games too. Like Barrain and Andorra.
To conclude this. I must say that I am very fascinated with these warm countries which does participate. Hurray! and hope some of you will win, because that is more special than when Norway wins its medals which does have snow and winter temperatures almost all year. Yes.. in the summer. Its possible to skii in the mountains here.
Have a nice Winter Olympics time!
