So Long, Vancouver 2010

The medals have all been handed out and the flame’s been extinguished. Monday saw Vancouver International Airport have its busiest day on record as 39,000 visitors left the host city for home. As for me, I won’t forget joining in the massive red-and-white street party that consumed downtown Vancouver anytime soon—I think my favorite moment had to be seeing a crowd of turbaned Indo-Canadian kids dancing to a bhangra beat to celebrate our victory in men’s hockey, creating their very own wonder of the shrinking planet.

The good news is Canada did a nice job in putting on the event.
Too bad they couldn’t control the weather.  If the USA had to lose
the hockey gold to anybody, I’m glad it was Canada.
