scenic line ups

Several major downtown streets are converted to pedestrian walkways, and are wall to wall people. It's not easy to take photos because you can't stand in one place for too long before the human current sweeps you along. Risa just wanted free stuff but there wasn't much of that (without lining up for hours), and she's too young to appreciate anything else, like the significance of having so many people from around the world flooding the familiar streets of your home town. Still, I'm happy to go back home and watch the games on our hdtv.
On the way to the caulron:
Line up to the Royal Canadian Mint (medal display)
Support Team Canada Banner
Zipline across Robson Street (7 hour line up for 30 second ride)
