PYEONGCHANG – Michigan native Melissa Szkola is in PyeongChang, where she will be officiating ice hockey during these 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

She sent this update and photos on Monday: 

Today we wondered around the Olympic Village. Went to a pin trading event where we learned a lot about the different Olympic pins from over the decades and made a few cool trades. We also made some postcards with the help of a few locals girls. They were very excited to help us and practice their English. Then we took a nice long walk to Kyeongpo Beach to check out all the seafood.
