Temos uma amiga que conhecemos aqui no Canadá que disse que não imigrou para o Canadá, mas sim para Vancouver!!! Pensei, pensei (mas não pensei muito... rs) a respeito e confesso que também imigrei somente para essa cidade maravilhosa, apesar de ter chegado um pouco tarde demais (rs) para encontrar o "Lex Luthor" (que morreu (não sei porquê, pois na história original ele não morre...) no seriado Smallville, gravado aqui)!!!
Mas enfim, como estou trabalhando no ramo de turismo e hotelaria, um dos principais segmentos do mercado de Vancouver, vou tentar publicar alguns eventos semanais...
Lá vão então (July 30 - August 05)…Have lots of fun!!!

July 22 – August 22

It’s the funniest thing in seven consonants! Jubilant and touching, this Tony Award–winning musical comedy pits quirky prepubescent overachievers against one other in the spelling challenge of a lifetime.
