View of Coca Cola 2010 Olympics truck and bus from our bedroom window
BC Legislature building with a bunch of stuff set up on the lawn for the ceremony
Government St blocked off for the torch relay
It's not a proper party without a bunch of crappers!
Beautiful ivy on The Empress
People flocking to the flame ceremony
Horsies! Now those are REAL mounties!
Really? That's the best you can do? Indeed, the protester turnout was unimpressive and pathetic. And that "raging grannie" didn't even appear to have much rage! She could have at least hit me with her cane.
The stage. Ooooh.
A painfully cheesy cartoon they showed with the 2010 Olympics mascots. It was really really bad.
Some Ferguson guy and the mascots
Yes, one of the mascots actually looks like a big fuzzy poop.
Ferguson and fuzzy poop.

Mascot pestering the children
There were lots of people there.
The Olympic flame arrived in a lantern in a canoe with some First Nations folks from a bunch of different tribes. This was all occurring behind us.
Lots and lots of talking that we actually couldn't hear, but that lantern has the Olympic flame in it.
More talking, more of the flame, freaking awesome headdress
Then they walked as slowly as they possibly could to where we all were. And by slow, I mean, like, excruciatingly slow. I hadn't seen people that slow since I used to visit my grandma in a nursing home.
Holding that flame high. His arms probably got tired. Walking faster probably would have helped.
Finally they arrived (you can see the water back there, they weren't very far away and it took, like, ten minutes)
If you zoom in, you can see the guy with the hat
And bam, better view now
They meandered around the fountain a few times, which gave me a really good view because I was close
And finally they made it up onto the stage.
