I’m now in the dining room of the Vancouver hostel. I’m guarding another laptop for someone, who’s name I’m yet to catch, who has gone off to find his Mum! He’s back now thank god, that was 15 minutes and 3 emails written!
I’ve just got a CAN of Apple Juice from the vending machines… why is it in a can? What happened to cartons, bottles… they did no wrong! Minute Maid, BRING THEM BACK! I emplore you. I miss home thanks to this simple fact! Apple Juice does not come in cans!
For dinner, I’ve had my first sushi out here! It was from a small sushi takeout near the hostel. They tried hard and had a nice atmosphere, I could even watch it being made. Thats the first time I’ve seen it done in person, the guy was quite masterful. But he does need to work on his number 1 special. Oh I got a lot of Sushi and Mizo Soup for my $7.22, but a fried lemon chicken goujon was not a great filler for the rolls (although intresting when still warm), and the vegitable rolls were plain. Some spices, pickling or fusion would do well there. Overall, 6.8/10.
Apparently a lot of hostels DO have free Wi-Fi, this one is an exception… and that blows! I’m not paying $10 for 24 hours access, or going through the rigoramall of registering an account with Boingo I will probably never use.
Anyway, I really want some sleep
