Have been keeping busy the past couple of days. Monday we travelled back into Van to go to an Ice Hockey match. Had a great time, unfortunately the Vancouver Canucks lost, but its a great atmosphere and the stands were pretty packed! Encountered a few homeless people afterwards whislt trying to find somewhere to have a drink. Plenty of them around unfortunately. We bought a pitcher (jug) to share and tasted some of the local Candaian beer (truefully i cant tell the difference between beers, so any is good). Stayed the night in the YWCA, was a nice room and had yoghurt n a muffin for breaky at the Vancouver library food court.
Tuesday spent some big bucks buying plenty of souviners etc. Sears is a pretty cool place to shop (like our Myers) and found an awesome little shop called Claire's (so u can guess where your pressies came from Claire)! After spending all our money we headed back to Whistler to catch up with some of Emma & Kris' friends for drinks.
They have a great mixture of friends here. Lets just say having a group made up of Quebecer French (they speak French but its a little different to 'normal' French and live in Quebec in Canada), Kiwi's and Pommies makes playing drinking games very interesting, yet very confusing!!!!
Wednesday was a quiet one. Took another trip to the supermarket where all products have to have english and french. It can make it difficult to do things in a hurry when there is so much to read. Some products will have the english version facing forward with the french version sitting next to it, others have the french underneath the english. Quite confusing.
A couple people have asked me about seeing Mounties. Im yet to be that lucky, however i have seen plenty of police and police cars. Even saw them arresting a homeless guy for hanging around the library food court. Apparently they dont like that too much, they put him in the cuffs n all.
Okay guys well thats it for now. Keep up the comments and emails, its still nice to hear whats been happening at home.
Hope you all have a good Good Friday (haha funny i know) and a lovely Easter. You all get a couple days of holidays now like me so have fun!!!
Take care, Becsta
