Today we arrived in Halifax! We were all very excited the whole flight but everything went well and our team arrived safe and sound! We are staying the the Delta and the view for our room is gorgeous! It was nice to get to our rooms and drop off our stuff, but we were quickly off exploring the athletes village. We were also left a nice surprise in our rooms as there were backpacks for each of us that had some fun souvenirs inside.
There is lots to see in the athletes village! We took a look at the ‘café connection’ and the arcade on our way to dinner and we are definitely going to head back to play some Wii! The dinning hall is huge and we had so much selection in what to eat. I was a little worried that they wouldn’t have the food I am used to but there is so much selection that I am sure everyone feels comfortable with the choices.
After dinner we went for a walk outside and the weather is gorgeous here, however I may be a little biased coming from Manitoba weather. The streets were packed as the band Great Big Sea were playing live, and we managed to catch a couple of songs.
It was interesting to see some of the other Provinces appeal as we walked around the village and we have already been propositioned about trading our touques. The pins are already out and the trading has begun!
Tomorrow and Monday are practice days and then we begin competing. We are all very excited to see the pool tomorrow and get back in the pool!
