    Mar 26, 2012

    ZAKOPANE, Poland -- The slap of ski-jumpers landing during dawn practice awakens the city. Zakopane isn't the type of place people pass through on accident.

Poland is a nation not unlike America's Midwest, rife with flat, endless fields of grain and soot-stained rusting industrial cities.
