    Unhappy Fire...............!
    ... great I get back to the hotel after 1 am after the Vancouver get together, bed by 2am...fire alarm goes off at 4 am.... walk down 19 flights... hang around outside in the tropical Vancouver morning heat while the fire brigade check the building and decide there is no fire...

    Was mighty happy to not see flames coming out of the hotel windows when I got dowb stairs that's for sure

    I have to say the fire brigade were bloody fast, they'd arrived before I'd got dressed and reached the ground foor.

    right...now to try and get back to sleep....

    Cheers

    Chris

    What a nice way to remember your visit to Vancouver! Glad everything turned out okay and there wasn't any fire.

    P.S Just think of the 19 flights of stairs you had to descend as a training exercise workout session .... some places charge additional for such services you know. LOL

    it must have felt very good to walk down 19 flights after a refreshing sleep of 2 hours.

    You can walk down 19 flights of stairs??

    Well.....maybe if I thought my ass was on fire, I could, too. But, certainly not willingly!

    Glad it was nothing.

    Now, SUE THEM!!

    Hey Alex , was great to see you again last night! 7 hours seemed like no time at all I don't think I spoke to even 25% of the people there, we need a full 24 hours next year

    19 floors down was fine.... I was worried about going back up 19 floors the same way.... fortunately the lifts were turned back on

    The whole trip has been pretty exciting so far, starting in Bangkok with my flight being cancelled, the alternate flight arriving 30 minutes late in Hong Kong..where I had a one hour connection... and after all that my bags actually arrived on the same plane!!!

    Canadian imigration has tightened up a lot since last year too, still smiling and polite but were on the verging of having me explain what affiliate marketing is, but did want to know why I'd want to be in Canada for a meeting about it.... so I went with "I like Canada" over "I can't get into the USA"

    Cheers

    Chris

    Hope you haven't lost weight walking down 19 flights...

    Enjoy your stay in Canada...
