Hello from Vancouver!

Hey guys, sorry about the lackadaisical updates, that will hopefully be changing.

As I previously mentioned, I am going to Vancouver Island for two weeks, and I am writing this from a hotel in Vancouver. I'll be heading up to Squamish tomorrow to play around on the Stawamus Chief before heading to the Island. Hopefully I'll have pictures tomorrow, the camera is cranky tonight.

Today was absolutely awesome; I went to Victory Square to see a monument I had read about and always wanted to see; the WWI obliesk inscribed "Is it nothing to you? Those who pass by? They will be remembered here evermore."

Very sobering to think not only of the sacrifices such young people gave, but also that that chapter in history is about to close as I can count on one hand the number of WWI veterans alive today.

I also went to Stanley Park, which is the most incredible free space I've ever seen maintained in a city; I wish other cities would consider keeping some green space like Stanley.

Other than that, it is insanely hot, around 35-40C which is about 95-100F. But I'm happy as can be and I can't wait till tomorrow when the video camera finally comes out.
