This is how the green fields of the Paquier area of Annecy could have looked in seven years’ time had they won the 2018 Winter Olympics bid. However, favourite contenders Pyeongchang in South Korea won, leaving the Paquier full of a crowd of people who sighed and muttered before walking away, ending the party that had been happening all day in the lead-up to the winning bid announcement.
There was, however, one group who kept partying. They were the ones holding the placards protesting against the Annecy Olympics bid. I imagine they’ve all woken up with hangovers this morning.
