Location: Vancouver, Canada

MapHi Everyone,

This week has been a jam-packed week in Vancouver!

On Sunday, I went for a wander around the city, and stopped in at BC Place Stadium which plays host to the Canadian Football League team and will be where the 2010 Winter Olympics Opening and Closing ceremonies will be held. There is a sports Hall of Fame museum that I had a wander around, but as it's a British Columbia Hall of Fame, I didn't really know too many people that featured.

On Monday night, Christine and I started a dance class at a little dance studio that's about 3 blocks from our apartments. We've both never taken any form of dance classes before so we're a little unco, but it's a bit of fun and entertainment on a Monday night.

On Tuesday night, I went to my first Ice Hockey game! Christine, Leith, Xavier and I saw the Vancouver Canucks take on the New Jersey Devils. We had pretty good seats, 6 rows back from the ice, right amongst the action. The Canucks were down 3-0 at the first break (they play 3 20-minute periods) and the fans were admittedly a little disenchanted. The Canucks pegged back a couple of goals, and were down 4-3 with only a couple of minutes to go in the final period. They looked like scoring, but took their goalie off to push an extra man up forward, which turned out to be a mistake when the Devils scored again. The final score was 5-3 Devils. Still, it was a very good first Ice Hockey experience!

More dodgeball tonight, and curling and perhaps snow tubing this weekend. Hope you're all enjoying the summer weather!

Love Fee xoxo
