Hey guys… just wanted to blog this about the vancouver Olympics… I know its over now… but I just wanted to share what it was like when it happened… The vancouver 2010 Olympics demonstrated a city in total party mode for 16 days. Just to think that they put seven years of hard work into advancing for this major international event , and regardless of the trajedies and mistakes that surrounded the early days of the Games, Canada was able to fight and ultimately reign victorious when it won the gold medal in the final hockey game against the U.S. Our land won a total of 14 medals, the greatest number of golds to be won by a host country of the Olympics.

Downtown vancouver was the site of various special activities, including live music shows , spectacular light displays , ziplining along Robson Street – where there appearently was a seven-hour wait – and night long parties all over . At night the main party strip , host of the liveliest nightlife in vancouver, was full for hours on end . A number of houses/tents were erected to feature Canada’s provinces, as well as the various countries that participated in the Games. I went downtown on a few times during the course of the Games, but I have to say that the most enjoyable sight was following the Opening scenes .

I’ll always recall walking down Granville Street at this wonderful time, and it made me joyful to see Canada, where the citizens are so patriotic. As I do business in vancouver quite often I was dazzled by the fact that many people posted their Canadian flags up in their windows proudly showing their Country! Many of my showings included a wonderful sight of a Canadian flag! Wherever you went, you saw individuals dressed in Canada’s national colors of red and white, high-fiving literal strangers as they screamed and cheered and had a wonderful time. And nobody created any problems! Security officers were located every few feet, but there weren’t any fights to break up. At least I didn’t see any…

Such an incredible event in such a world class city like this a city like this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Vancouverites were also very patriotic by putting Canadian flags all over the city and volunteering for the event as well. We hope you will appreciate this city if you are ever in vancouver sometime, which will give you an idea of the craziness that took place downtown – both night and day.
