Hi
Does anyone know where I can find out exact details about where the Olympic torch relay will be tomorrow?
I've looked at the below two pages but they really aren't helpful at all!

Thanks in advance!

It is not the Olympic torch per se anymore...:

Sorry, the more I looked at it I realised it did not exactly show times on which street etc.

RL...what difference does it make, being lit by vestibule virgins on mount Olympus by the rays of the sunlight at midday or a Russian security guard with a zippo :jester:

I am sure you are grown up enough to see the difference yourself.:) A good piece of free advertisement for Zippo, they can just add the titles and show it on TV on prime time. It has happened twice already, while I remember the interview with one of the torch manufacturers who claimed it will never extinguish, whatever the weather.:) Out of all places, it happened in the middle of the Kremlin territory, what an utter disgrace. These people in power cannot even manage keeping the fire burning, as simple as that. I am now fully convinced they have special attendants to wipe their asses and to lace their shoes.
Frankly, I would like the West to boycotte these games altogether and will be happy if it happens.

I heard tha BIC also wanted to be in the show at first. but a cheapo throw away lighter? the Kremlin denied the request and choose the classy Zippo instead...
Dunhill also wanted, but they are so expensive, all that gold and diamond encrusted lighteres, does not make a good show for the AMATEUR Olympic games. So they took a good middle way, and choose the ZIPPO.

Lighter works in all windy conditions (http://themoscownews.com/russia/20131008/191969906/Sochi-Olympic-flame-mishap-used-in-PR-by-lighter-firm.html), but you need to fill with the smelly fluid & keep extra flints.

:elf: Made locally in Pennsylvania. Does Russia make a lighter, at all :question:
