Wow, the feedback on yesterday’s post was awesome! I had no idea you guys would find that stuff so interesting. I will definitely be doing more posts about Canada’s geography/history/politics in the future, so watch for those.
Staying on the Canada note, guess what Canada is doing in like two weeks? If you don’t know, you live under a rock.
Well Canada, and more specifically Vancouver, BC, is hosting the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. So, for the past couple of months the Olympic torch has been traveling through all of Canada. Interesting fact; it went up into a corner of Nunavut and it was the furthest north the Olympic torch has ever been. Ever.
Last night the torch came through Kamloops and I went with some friends. It was cold outside but a really fun and exciting experience!
Here are some photos (oh and some of them are really crappy and blurry. Night photography is not my forte.
Me with Quatchi!
Coca-cola Truck, they were giving away free coke. Very cool!
Me with the torch! Yay!!
There were tons of people there!
Here comes the Olympic Torch! We waited for over an hour, in the freezing cold, to secure this great spot.
After we saw the torch go by we got out of there. We were SO COLD. Once I got home I relaxed with my Olympic Coca-cola, some mushroom soup and cheese bread.
Go, Canada, go!
To be honest, I havenâ€™t been overly psyched about the Olympics. But this kind of put some Olympic spirit in me and even though my fingers felt like they were going to freeze off Iâ€™m SO glad that I went. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see the Olympic Torch go through my town like that and it was a very cool feeling.
Are you excited for the Olympics or pay attention to that kind of thing? Why or why not? What’s your favourite Olympic sport?
Iâ€™m most excited about the HOCKEY! Figure skating is also fun to watch.
