Nothern Lites In Exile
Nothern Lites In Exile:
From the 21st of December to the 3rd of January Nothern Lites was in misplaced. That is not saying the Blog was lost rather the Blogger was out to town. The time was spent in Vancouver where among many important things beer was to be had. The first beer is always the best after weeks dry the feeling of relaxation and it is now brake time is on and stop worrying.
There is always the question of just how bushed am I. This question forcefully enters ones mind once camp is left in favour for a more urban setting where the population is more diverse and the important bit here is the diversity of young women which are lacking in an drilling camp in the middle of nowhere.
Note that the pictures date from my January 2006 visit as I did not get around to taking any on this christmas visit.
Over all time was spent getting lost down town, spending money largely on the principle that non had been spent in some time and it was good to let it out for a little exercise.
Family played a role as Christmas was spent together, over very tasty nibbles, goat and chicken. Special thanks; to Nienke van Houten, for cooking an excellent spread and Ien van Houten for providing tasty healthy and morally sound meats. Then nephew was treated to a trip to Science World, which was an absolute zoo of wall-to-wall people. But as good time was had.
The Blogger as noted above enjoyed beers and also made it a point of going out a few nights and was some what drunk and slightly surprised when he found him self on a dance floor and some what more surprised when briefly he was actually dancing with people. This is in contrast with his fuzzy recollections of other times dancing where he managed to clear a circle around himself close to half his height in radius due to be over energetic and forced into a club where the music is crap first and for most and secondly so fast paced and poly-rhythmic that only and epileptic octopus could dance to it.
