I arrived in Vancouver Saturday night after a rough flight from Calgary. Westjet is still awesome though. I got to watch the Canucks game on the flight AND they gave me cookies. So we roughly landed and my bag came super quick which was great. It was one of the first bags to come along the belt. I hopped on the Skytrain. It was about a half hour to the waterfront. It was raining of course. I emerged from the underground, which seems like a strange place to emerge from the Skytrain, but oh well, and walked the block and a half or so to my hostel. It being a Saturday night and downtown there were lots of drunk people around. I checked into my hostel. My room was super small. It was a 2person dorm. A very small room with bunk beds. There was another person in there who had a LOT of stuff and it looked as though they had been there for a very long time. I really didn't feel like going out and wandering the streets at that point of the night, so I just went online and tried to get some more of my Hawaiian adventure planned.
My roomate came home pretty. The hostel is RIGHT above a bar.. Super loud, especially on the weekend and for Grey Cup type events. So we ended up just staying up talking for awhile. She's from Sweden and super nice.It was probably after 3 by the time we actually got to sleep. So I slept in pretty solid Sunday morning. Went outide and came face to face with a pack of... Saskatchewan Roughriders fans..... yup... Grey Cup day! FYI Sask was NOT in the grey cup, but after BC Lions fans, Roughrider fans were by far the most common. Went to Tims and had the worst Tim's coffee ever. Went to the mall and got an appt. at the Apple store and ran some other errands. In the evening, which is about 4pm because that's when the sun sets these days, I took a walk down by Canada Place and took some pictures, as you can see from my FB page.
