A day after the official opening of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, my fiancé and I decided to go to Richmond Centre and experience the Olympic atmosphere.
Clearly, every sign points to an important theme:
Yes, it’s Olympic time, and in front of every TV, people are watching the games. Hockey, skiing, luge, mogul – people just watch and try to enjoy the games. After all, it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to have the world’s greatest sport entertainment shown and play in your own city. I mean, I think it is pretty incredible.
At The Bay, it was very crowded. Everyone was getting on the Olympic bandwagon and wanted to get something Olympic.
Unable to withstand the temptation, I bought some things too:
The most popular item, I think, is the Olympic mitten. $10 – that’s not expensive at all, and I would’ve bought it, if we actually had some snow on the ground or if it was snowing like the end of 2008-beginning of 2009. Now that would’ve been a different Olympic experience.
The Opening Ceremony was awesome, especially at the very beginning when the snowboarder came in and started the ceremony. From the start to end, I think it was a great show, and it demonstrated that Vancvouer is truly a heavenly city with natuarl beauty.
