My Mystery Trip

A few people guessed Seattle, and while that was close, we went further North...

Morgandy was excited!
We were going to the Olympics!!!
Welcome to Canada!
Here is Emi and I on the subway, which we used frequently to get around town (and only managed to get lost in a few times).
Downtown Vancouver was bustling, and on Friday evening everyone went crazy when Canada won gold in the Skeleton.
The Olympic Cauldron was gorgeous. Too beautiful to capture on camera.
It was so fun to see it in person!
We got red mittens!
Yep, we're ballet dancers, and proud of it.
We had tickets to see Ice Dancing.
Ready to cheer for the Americans!
Inside the Pacific Colosseum
The Zamboni drivers worked hard for four hours.
Afterwards we met the skaters Penny Coomes and Nicholas Buckland from Great Britain.
And then our long weekend was over and we headed back to the good old United States!
