I´m such a fan of movies. I really love going to the movie theathre to watch a movie. When I was in Monterrey, I used to go to watch a movie at least once a week. Some people like movies as much as me, but some of them prefer to watch them at home. Besides watching the movie, what I enjoy is the feeling of being in the cinema. Actually, sometimes I use to go alone because it´s kind of relaxing for me. The VIP Cinema are the best of all because you can watch the movie sit on a very confortable couch. Moreover, you have waiter service. In Mexico, to watch a movie is not as expensive as it is in Vancouver, so that´s why I used to go very often. You can watch a movie for 5 dlls. If you have a student card, you can watch it for 3.5 dlls. Since I am in Vancouver, I really miss going to the cinema, but I´ve found other ways to have fun.

My problem...

I'm going to stay in Vancouver until December, that's why I've been looking for an apartment since last month. Even if I don't find one, I don't care because I'm very happy with my host family. My problem is that 2 mexicans friends want to visit Vancouver for holidays and they want to stay with me. I just sent them an email to let them know that I haven't found anything. They don't want to spend money for a hotel, therefore they are pushing me to get an apartment, no matter what. Eventhough they are very close friends, I think they shouldn't be acting like that. They don't care if I like the house where I'm living, otherwise they're just thinking about their holidays.

What should I tell them?

My adventure in Vancouver

Hiking Grouse Mountain

Rahel, Pauline and me arrived to Vancouver almost on the same day. Therefore, we became close friends inmediately. During our first week in the city the weather was really bad and it was raining all the time. After waiting for 2 weeks, the sun finally appeared. For this reason, we decided to go hiking Grouse Mountain.

At first, everybody was so excited with the idea of hiking the mountain. After walking for 20 minutes, we realized that it wasn´t as easy as we had thought. For example, a friend felt tired and sick so she decided to go back. While we were getting close to the top, the road became harsh. In fact, my legs were shaking and I barely could breathe. However, I continued hiking. Finally, we did it.

The feeling of being on the top was great but I think I won´t do it again. At least, not for the next 2 months!
