I can't believe we are here now.
And what a ride it's been. Chocolate Lover and I are happy to be in the heart of all the excitement. Our friends from Cyprus are commenting about how awesome the city looks in the segments promoted in international news. Let's ignore the fact that they had to haul snow from 237 km away since this ended up being the warmest winter on record! The week before it all began CL and I kept driving around the city late at night when the crowds had exhausted their curiosity and when there was fewer road closures in the downtown core. The city looks like out-of-the-box new.
This is exciting. I think it'll give us a chance to immerse ourselves into something else and take a bit of a break from it all. There's definitely a positive vibe in the air.
Here is a quick glimpse of the English Bay lights show, shot with my phone a couple of days ago.
Until next Friday, this is Mr. Milk, signing off.
