The Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics is well under way and the city is just buzzing with activities. Even if you don’t take in a single Olympic event, there is just so much to see and do right now. Here’s a few more videos and photos from around downtown Vancouver.
The first video was taken at the Royal Canadian Mint Pavilion. You already saw the pictures of the $1 million coin. Now you can watch the video. The second video shows the Olympic cauldron. I have a great view of the cauldron from my house in West Vancouver. However, the flame looks even better when you’re only 100 feet from it. The BBC was filming at the cauldron when we got there and it seems I got on some BBC news broadcast (I was filming them while they were filming me).
The lantern display on Granville Street. The street was sealed off from cars.
The world’s biggest Canada flag. It draped two sides of a 12 stories building.
The line up to get into the Royal Canadian Mint Pavilion was over two hours long.

The Olympic cauldron looks a lot like Superman’s fortress of solitude.
