From one Queen (Queen Latifa) to another (the Governor General of Canada, Michaelle Jean). From giant Cowbells to crazy pin trading fanatics, this Olympic freight train is rolling along on course and Whistler has come alive – even more alive that it usually is.
The last few days have been a blend of live concerts, giant cowbells, multimedia art shows, national pride, gold medals and beer – lots of beer.
The swelling of Canadian pride is amazing to see. A nation known for its humble nature has suddenly become – patriotic.
From sneaking into Swiss House after their gold medal win in Men’s Downhill to attending the Women’s Luge finals and today’s exciting and dramatic Ladies’ Downhill, it’s been a blast so far!
Barenaked Ladies are playing in Whistler’s Village Square tonight, and then, there’s always the hope of getting into the Our Lady Peace concert tonight. The rest of the Games are bound to bring more adventures and we’re really just getting warmed up!
