I was being overly confident that we could get tickets. After alot of hoopla we arrived at the park to find out that the concert had been sold out. There were over 40,000 people there the night before, this was to be the less busy event, their second concert in a row. Complete dissapointment, we sat in the park listening to the choons from far away, we were even able to see the stage…but. Bollocks if you ask me. A random bloke approached me, two tickets he had, I offered him less than 1/2 the face value…..he happily accepted. Holy crap, for 40 London Bucks we both got in. The concert was busy with “only” about 35,000 people, insanity. I will write more later.
We even watched some type of a military parade, changing of colours or something like that. No clue, but it happens only once every 25 years and we stumbled upon it. Sadly the Queen refused my repeaded phonecalls and doorbell rings. I just wanted to be nice a nice tourist and ask her out for drinks and sausages. Mean-Queen.
From Gatwick to Vancouver. I even ordered a vegetarian, dairy-free meal….just to screw with them.
PS. Not going to make it to Poland, not enough time + too tired + I want to go camping in BC + I miss my cat + spent too much money + I want to make Polska a vacation all on it’s own!!!!
Just had my haircut and now it's clearly time to celebrate with some breakfast pints. Tried a few local beers and so far have been very dissapointed, most taste like very watered down ales. A STRONG beer here is a %5 lager, it tastes like Canadian with alot less crispness and flavous. Not giving up yet, the day is young and the variety is extensive. I will however stop asking for suggestions from the locals.
Just had Coronation chicken (Hi Elaine!!), a chicken breast wrapped in a pita, smothered in a mustardey, tangy sauce. Superb.
