It’s the morning after the Games, and all the people have disappeared!
I took a quick look at Waterfront this morning, after heading to YVR to see the crowds (more on that later in this post.)
The platform for Expo/Millennium Line was not busy.
It was quiet on the train as well.
Even the lineups at the Olympic Line streetcar have dwindled. The line operates until March 21, so hop on while you still can!
On the way to YVR, however, a steady stream of passengers were heading to the airport. It wasn’t super full, but it wasn’t empty, either.
And when I got to the airport, I arrived just in time to see the Czech team unloading all its stuff! There was an entire Ryder cube van filled with just luggage and sporting equipment.
Have you ever seen so many skis packed up for a plane? I wonder how the baggage allowance works for Olympic athletes!
The airport seemed to have it all under control though, despite the terminal being undeniably busy. Mascots like BeeBop here were walking around and entertaining people. Check out the post at YVR’s blog which shows BeeBop playing hacky sack with the Czech athletes!
See, here’s the international departures area — it was flowing well and not too tied up with people. Well done, YVR!
