An Evening Walk Through Vancouver at the 2010 Winter Olympics

Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics
February 12-28, 2010

If thou hast a herte that aches or a spirit lost,  or a body broken or a dream that was burnt,  come forth on a ride with King Arthur.      It is when your head is at thy lowest,  thou must find a place of newness to rest thine eyes and herte.     So pack up thy destrier,  place a light surcoat over thy armor for we shall ride to Vancouver in the year 2010,  where many Kingdoms have joined to joust and ski and feast and play.

Come forth dear Knights down Georgia Street.   These constellation Bears of Light greet us near the Four Seasons Hotel.
