The 2010 Winter Olympics are finally here and the Jaunted Embeds are on the scene. All throughout the games we are going to be providing you first-hand observations and tips from a Vancouver local. Tuija Seipell is a Vancouver-based writer and a dual citizen of both Finland and Canada--so she is bound to get a medal or two right? You can follow her on Twitter here, or just follow the Vancouver 2010 Olympics tag.
The final week of the 2010 Winter Olympics has begun and crowds are reaching peak numbers. There is a line-up for everything. One of the longest has been the six-plus-hour wait for the 30-second zip across Robson Square. Amazingly, everyone says it is worth the wait, and that they had fun in the line-up.
Another consistent queue has been to the Olympic superstore at The Bay that sells the official Olympic merchandise. People have waited on average for 1.5 hours to get in the store and another hour or two to get through the checkouts and out. Some have arrived at 6 a.m. for the 9 a.m. store opening.
