Still in Vancouver hanging about. Oh yeah, forgot to mention in the last post that i have caught up with Wilson, a friend
from back home. He had just come back from Banff when i arrived and still living in the hostel.
Spent most of my third day in Vancouver in the library, getting prepared for the ski job fairs.
Filling out and sending applications, making phone calls and updating my resume.
Here's an interesting fact i found out while printing my resume in the library. There is no such thing as A4 sized
paper in North America. What the ! They use legal letter sized paper over here. Well that just stuffs up the look
of my resume as there is a whole lot of white space on the left and right hand side of the borders. Anyway got that done
and went out to buy a folder in which to put my resume in. Lucky i didn't take my folder from home, the paper would
not have fitted. But then again, maybe i should have done all this before i left :)
Sorted out all my stuff for the upcoming job interviews and by then after a bit of a rest had dinner and rocked up to one
of Wilson's friends living in Canada for a game of No Limit Holdem'. Not for money though....damn! After this a few of
us went to have a few drinks back at Granville st near the hostel.
Things of note when drinking in BC (British Columbia).
1. No alcohol can be consumed outside even though you are still on the pub/bars premesis after 11pm
2. Bouncers will not let you into the pub if you can't get a seat
3. You get a waitress to serve you alcohol
4. Pubs and bars close at 2am (at least on weekdays and weekends too i think) or stop serving alcohol after this time.
So at 2am left the pub, back into the hostel for a bit of a musical pass the guitar around session and up in the morning
off to Kelowna.
Oh yeah, and i've got a mobile and i'm on pre-paid.
Things to note about using a mobile phone in Canada: YOU PAY FOR INCOMING AND OUTGOING PHONE CALLS!!!
