Vancouver

So, our days in Moose Jaw are numbered. Vancouver is on the horizon and it's very exciting. I can't believe its happening. A year ago we were in South Africa, I was doing shifts in Nelspruit because i couldn't find work in JHB. Six months ago we were in the middle of nowhere town of Yorkton, living above someone's garage on a farm. Now we are in the "city" of Moose Jaw, with our very own cinema and not rubbish hockey team. This time next month we will be in Vancouver( well, Abbotsford - which is what Midrand is to Jo'burg) and it feels surreal still. Vancouver is going to rock. We'll be able to finally find places to do all our hobbies, decent gyms with instructers who actually know how to do the thing they're teaching. Shops - yay! Robson street is like a little Oxford street. Millions of coffee shops, art galleries and all other things that separate us humans from the apes.
Pretty scary too. We have nowhere to live as of yet. We have to drive all our stuff ourselves across the country in a U-haul van. And I haven't met the guy I'm going to be working for. But these are details, the point is we are moving out of the prairies!
