Maple Ridge, Canada - 23rd April 2008

By: AbbyB

Bonsoir mom!  Je suis arivée en Canada.  I was excited to learn that my first host speaks some French.  She said that she's out of practice, and I kind of have to agree: her accent is terrible.

Abby didn't arrive home from school until late, so I had to stay in her mailbox for a few hours, but another TV, Mausi, arrived in the mailbox the same time I did, so we talked about where we were from and our travels so far until we were rescued out of the mailbox.

Upon arriving we were immediately greeted by one of Abby's cats.


But then we both felt a little tired from our travels, so we decided to hop into bed.


Then Abby's cat decided that we needed some more insulation...


That's all for tonight.  I'm ready for bed.  Goodnight mom :]

Port Moody, Canada - 24th April 2008

By: AbbyB

Today I went to school with Abby.


We studied some biology.


Abby gave us money to go buy lunch.


Abby's friend showed up to eat lunch and wanted a picture with me, because I am a French duck.  His name is Kenard, and if you change the spelling to canard, it's duck!


And then back to studying

After school, I went to Abby's rugby game.  She had her friend take pictures, but they didn't get any with me in them.

Her team is the blue team.  She's not in this picture


This is where I stayed, safe from the carnage :P

Today I voted for this year's valedictorian at Abby's school.


The person we wanted to win didn't win, but oh well, we liked all of the choices.

Afterwards, we went to Dairy Queen.  I helped Abby eat the new tin roof brownie blizzard.  Mmmm.

North Vancouver, Canada - 27th April 2008

By: AbbyB

Today we went to Lonsdale Quay in North Vancouver.  It's a big market with lots of little stores and booths, and lots of ethnic foods.  It's right across the inlet from downtown Vancouver.

I decided to check out a few of the stores.

This store sold things with native designs on them


This store sold things made out of alpaca wool.  These animals and slippers were very soft



The store sold these dolls as well.


This was just in case I forgot where I was.


This picture is kind of blurry, but if you look in the centre, but towards the right, there's a yellow arrow that points to where we are.


A mosaic on the floor of the market


In the food court.  We didn't eat one of these, but they're a very Canadian thing.  Big flat pastry things with various toppings' the most popular is cinnamon and sugar.


In front of the market



Near the water we were able to read about ship spotting.



So, I decided to take a look.



There's one!  Behind it is downtown Vancouver.


A paddlewheeler paddled by as Mausi and I were posing.


I saw this sign and I was a little concerned.


But I decided to respect this sign.



Later we went higher to try to get a better view.

There were some trees in the way.


Vancouver's down there...somewhere, but it wasn't a very good day for picture taking.


Kind of a blurry picture at night.

Gastown, Vancouver, Canada - 5th May 2008

By: AbbyB

Today was Abby's mom's birthday, so we surprised her with dinner.  We were so busy eating that we forgot to take pictures, but Abby wandered outside after dessert to show us Gastown.

Gastown is one of the oldest parts of Vancouver.  Most of it was destroyed in a fire at one point, but there are a lot of really cool old buildings around; most of them are now tourist shops.

The most famous part of Gastown is the steam clock, the only one in the world.





Up and down the street.  They're giving that one building a facelift.



See all the tourist shops?


This was on the building that our restaurant was in.



Here you can see some of the mountains to the north of Vancouver.  The red things in front are part of Port Vancouver, at the shipyards.


The building with the sails is called Canada Place.  Under the sails are large rooms that are used for grad dinner/dances and conventions.  There is a hotel attached.  At night they light up the sails with coloured lights.


In the distance you can see the back of Waterfront Station, where the daily commuter train stops.  I heard the front is impressive, but I didn't get to see it.  Hopefully I'll be able to see it before I leave.


In the distance (sorry the picture is so dark, the sun was beginning to set), you can see Harbour Centre,.  The thing that looks like a spaceship on top is a revolving restaurant, but most of the building is owned by a local university, and their communications department has classes there.


One of the nearby buildings.  Abby doesn't know the history of this one, but on the bottom floor/basement there's a Mexican restaurant that sells real Mexican food.


One of the many alleys in Vancouver.  Gastown is on the edge of the famous downtown East Side, which is known for its homeless and drug users, which is why we didn't go down any of these alleys.  I wasn't scared while wandering around the area though, because I had my host's family protecting me :]  You can see Harbour Centre again in the background.


This picture was taken in the car, which is why there is a reflection.  This place is called Victory Square; Vancouver's war memorial is the big concrete block, and a ceremony is celebrated here on Remembrance Day, November 11, every year.  My reflection kind of obscures the wreaths in front of the memorial, which were placed there last week to commemmorate all the work'related deaths in British Columbia in the past year.

Maple Ridge, BC, Canada - 6th May 2008

By: AbbyB

Today I took a bus ride.  Abby didn't have the chance to take any pictures of me on the bus,

but she snapped a few while we were waiting.


The bus loop is brand new and it was everyone's first time using it.


Across the parking lot is Maple Ridge's theatre, the ACT.
