Wow - Vancouver.

Vancouver is the most wonderful city in the world. Except when it rains, and it's been raining ceaselessly for over six days now. I imagine a monsoon must be similar.

Despite the rain, I'm having a smashing time in Vancouver. I have some great friends here, who've been a real help. Through them, I've met a terrific bunch of locals who, among other achievements, offered me a berth on an ice hockey team. And when a Canadian invites you on to their ice hockey team, you don't say no. Truth be told, I was rubbish. But it was the most fun I've had in years. Who else in Ireland can say they've placed ice hockey? Eh? There isn't even a single rink in that country! It's a shame, because I'm really keen to keep it up. The minor cuts and bruises made it all worthwhile. Or perhaps I'm thinking of the after-match drinks...

My writing isn't especially fluent today, so it's time to resort to photos. So here are some snaps from Vancouver, the hockey, Victoria, and the Strait of Georgia.
