Saturday night I headed out to walk the Sea Wall. I hadn't done this walk before, so I figured I'd give it a shot. When I got to the park in front of my building I turned around and took this shot... I live in the left tower (Jervis Tower).

Walking down W Pender to get to Smileys. I didn't think sitting at home on a Friday evening was a good idea, so I headed to my hangout (did the math - I've been at Smileys more times than I haven't been at Smileys while being in Vancouver). Had a few beers, and then Chris (my bartender buddy) gave me a free pitcher. I decided having an entire pitcher by myself was a bad idea, so I texted Danielle and Dave and they joined me for a bit. Good night all around... and good beer.

Updating my blog for the first time in two weeks. And what a hectic two weeks it was! Looking back at what's progressed... I didn't have a visa, a place to live, any clue what I was doing with my car, etc etc. Now I'm in Vancouver, employed, have a place to live, a parking spot, and know my way around sections of the downtown area. It's amazing how fast time flies!

Just got home and turned on the TV to see what was on... JEPORDY! Caught up on facebook, 100+ blog posts on my google-reader, and then went to bed.

Time to work out! I decided that biking from Vancouver to Whistler sometime sounded like a good idea, so I'm starting to train for a day long ride. Did a mild 20 miles before Big Brother started... I'm planning on getting to 100 miles before embarking on the actual ride.

My first full week of work since I left New Zealand! I went to the store after work and picked up some food to make Egg/Tuna Salad Sandwiches... delicious.

Drove back to Vancouver today. I hadn't spoken with Alla in a few days, so I spent the evening relaxing on the couch and chatting with her. The views from my place are amazing... I don't think I'll even get sick of watching the waterplanes land in the harbour.
