The 5 olympic rings, better known as the olympic smybols represents the 5 inhabited continents (Africa, Asia, Europe, America, Australasia).

A feeling

Cold and stormy winds lowered us down into the darkness...without a breath. One moment later, warmth was near our bodies. It had turn out my uncle had made a blazing red fire...keeping us warm for the whole winter season. It wasn’t a great view just sitting around the blazing hot fire but as much as I can say I felt like a planet orbiting around the bright scorching sun.
