Loving the Olympics

Arrived in Vancouver Feb. 9, went from the airport on the new Canada Line (skytrain) to downtown then to the PNE grounds for my accreditations and uniform, this process was amazingly fast (no lineups)! So headed right over to my homestay family in North Vancouver as I still had all my luggage with me.

Arrived in Vancouver Feb. 9, went from the airport on the new Canada Line (skytrain) to downtown then to the PNE grounds for my accreditations and uniform, this process was amazingly fast (no lineups)! So headed right over to my homestay family in North Vancouver as I still had all my luggage with me.

It’s so warm and sunny, blossoms out everywhere you look.

Off to downtown to take in some of the sights, not all open yet most start on the 12th. Attending the dress rehearsal to the opening ceremony. Got into BC place about 3 p.m.

It looks amazing in here, the ceremonies were great, can’t wait to see them tomorrow on TV. The 12th is my first shift on Cypress Mountain.

Feb. 12, 2010

The trip takes about two hours to get there. It’s very rainy on the mountain. My shift went well. Talked to a few athletes as they waited to catch a bus down the hill to the opening ceremonies. Everyone seemed quite happy and friendly. Talk to you in a few days.
