Dr. Bass in the Athens Olympic Sports Complex,
commonly referred to as OAKA (oh-AH-ka).
A shot of "The Agora," which is the central walkway of OAKA.
The stadium in OAKA, with a distinctive roof structure
designed by Barcelona architect Santiago Calatrava,
one of the key forces behind the look of the 1992 Olympics.
The stadium is the site of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies,
as well as the men's soccer final.

The design of OAKA plays on the contrasts of white structures,
like The Agora, and water -- fountains are throughout the park.

The Olympic Flame at Salt Lake Games
In the high mountains above Park City, Utah, home of a lot of the events
of the Salt Lake Games. Wyoming is the background. Dr. Bass is on the left,
husband Evan is in the middle, and friend Jen is on the right.
Buildings in Salt Lake City were "wrapped" with winter
sports images, creating a striking Olympic skyline. This one juxtaposes
a figure skater with the Morman Temple -- an interesting contrast.

Dr. Bass with Justin
Huish, double gold medallist in men's archery. When Justin won, he let Amy
try on one of his medals at the Closing Ceremony.
Park -- a public space
at the Olympics that you didn't need a ticket to enter, allowing a more "open"
feel for the Games. The fountains sprang up without warning in the
shape of the Olympic rings, soaking you by surprise. You either had
to be quick, or had to want to get wet.
Closing Ceremony: Dr. Bass (third from the left) with
some colleagues on the infield during the Closing Ceremony. First from
the left is Michelle Dussere Farrell, silver medallist in gymnastics in 1984
(a teammate of Mary Lou Retton's).
