Into the Venue
Wow! Today was Sunday and sunny. Warm and everyone was so spirited. As I write, Bus 250 is crossing the Golden Gate and I can see the Russain tall ship on my right and West Van lights on my left. Cyprus Mountain can bne seen from almost everytwhere in the city and was a gold mine for Canada tonight. The transit system really is working, though I did see some line-ups to get on the Canada Line heading to the Waterfront where the cauldron is.
I still have not seen many of the entertainment sites, but there is one here in West Van at their lovely community centre, and there is action there every night. Truly, the whole city is involved. Canadian shirts and hats and flags are everywhere. Families and couples and packs of friends and wandering souls are all united in thier wanderings along the streets of downtown Vancouver.
Today's photos show the arena. There are jumboTrons on both ends that show feeds of other Olympic events as well as close-ups of the games at hand.
So wtg Kristina Groves and Alexandre Bilodeau and Jenn Heil. Go Cda Go.
