Here we sit in the heart of Vancouver. We’ve found a small cafe with delicious soup and espresso to keep us chugging along. The day isn’t even halfway through, and already we’ve been thrown into a wirlwind of experiences that words cannot do justice.
We woke up early once again after hitting the hay at the wee hours of the morning. After spending the night editing, blogging and posting photos following an evening spent on the karaoke stage. Upon finishing breakfast we met up with our fellow Samsung Mobile Explorers, all bleary eyed from the night before and received our first challenge.
This first challenge is going to span two days, and started at the OR@S (Olympic Rendezvous @ Samsung in David Lam Park) where we were interviewed by media outlets and were lucky enough to meet the lovely Olympic Gold Medalist, Samsung Olympic ambassador and philanthropist, Hannah Teter. She was absolutely lovely, and we so wish we would have had more time with her, but c’est la vie, she is a very popular lady these days. Our challenge revolves around her and her charity Hannah’s Gold (www.HannahsGold.com), and we can only hope we can do both aspects justice. We’re certainly going to try our very hardest. Believe me, we definitely have some tricks up our collective sleeves. Be sure to hit http://Facebook.com/SamsungUSA at 9:00 PM PST tomorrow (February 13, 2010) to check out Team Cool Kids finished video and vote!
For now, the day will chug along now that we’ve filled our very needy bellies. We will continue to explore all that Vancouver and the 2010 Winter Olympic Games have to offer including the opportunity to watch the opening ceremonies at the USA Olympic house. Revelry and good times are sure to be had there before returning to the hotel for more hard work.
We also just saw the news from this morning regarding the Olympic Luger from the country of Georgia. Our hearts go out to his fellow teammates, family and country. It certainly is a dark cloud on the opening day of such a wonderful global event. We can only hope that this tragic event can bring our world nations closer together in unity. May he rest in peace.
We’re running on little to no sleep, but we hardly notice. There is so much excitement and amazing opportunities everywhere here in Vancouver. For now, we hardly have the time to bat an eyelash with so much to do, but we look forward to finally getting the chance to get some sleep…..in March. Team Cool Kids FTW!
