An ideal trip would be to somewhere that we could learn about many different cultures and have fun at the same time. The Winter Olympics would be a great place to do just that. With so many things to do and people to see, it would certainly be a very fun and educational trip. There are many events to choose from at the Olympics. From the luge to figure skating there is something for everyone. If we had multiple teachers go with us, each student could pick which event they would like to go to. Maybe one or two students like skiing but another one likes snowboarding, the group could split up and watch an event before meeting again. Since there are many rounds to each sport, we could watch the first half of one event and the second half of another so that we have the opportunity to experience each one. The plan for the trip could be flexible so that everyone is able to enjoy something. In between races and awards ceremonies, we could also learn a great deal about other cultures. There would be many educational benefits in going to the Olympics. We would learn not only about the lifestyle of the country we are in, but also the other countries that participate in the games. We would get a new idea of culture by interacting with visitors from other areas of the world. Along with learning about the character of the country, we could also learn about the geographical details. Before leaving for the trip, the group could study and learn about the location of our destination. Once we arrive, each student could take turns completing tasks that involve interacting with new people. One student might check in at the hotel, the next might order food at the restaurant, and another could catch the group a taxi. We will learn about different countries just by participating in everyday life with the people who live there. The trip could provide us with many long-term…

condoms were distributed to the Olympic athletes in London’s 2012 games, which seems excessive by any standard. Is the Olympic Village really the raunchy sex den its condom consumption suggests? —Derek Blank, Nashville
You find this surprising? Here you’ve got a bunch of mostly single, insanely buff young men and women. You take them away from their accustomed surroundings in every corner of the globe and lodge them in the private enclave known as the Olympic Village. Then let them get pumped…

I will explain identity in relation to this trend by…
