I’ve been a bit busier this week, and I actually do have photos to share. No news on the job front, except from an interview last week that I’m still waiting to hear if it develops into anything. It’s a long holiday weekend here at the moment so nothing may turn up till the middle of next week anyway.
So, I took to wandering around Stanley Park one day. I have done the walk around the seawall but I haven’t actually gone inside the park much, except to go to the Aquarium, so I took a wander around and went to visit the Rose Garden.
I was without internet for most of last week, which is why I skipped posting last Sunday. There has been quite a bit going on, though not much in the job line.
There was Greek Day, in my Kitsilano neighbourhood – a celebration of all things Greek with delicious food on offer, musical performances, craft stalls and people in costume, like those below:
No, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, I did skip a week last Sunday. But then it was my birthday and my parents and brother were in town so I figured I could do with a week off. And of course because they were here I did a lot more touristy things than I had been doing previously.
As well as the Downtown area of Vancouver and some shopping we walked along the waterfront and I showed them the Olympic Cauldron and some of the sculptures there and around the new conference centre (it was night and none of my pics of the area have come out well – I’ll have to go again during the day as there’s a sculpture of an Orca whale by Douglas Coupland I want to have a decent picture of).

There hasn’t been too much tourist-like activity occurring this week, though there has been a steady stream of resume sending out and craiglist browsing for housing. I’ve had some emails and call backs today about various things I have in the pipeline so it does feel like everything is starting to come together. For the moment I’m still in the hostel and right now sitting in the lounge area typing this, as the wifi in my room keeps dropping out appallingly.
I did go on a pretty brief trip to Kitsilano and the beach there, which you can see in the pictures below, but I definitely need to go back there and do some exploring, especially of the bookstores I hear are there. Though I’ve been good, I haven’t bought a single book yet! I still have two books with me to read though; we’ll see how long my willpower continues once I’ve finished them…
