Our night began with getting free tickets to the Christmas Market at Queen Elizabeth Park since I'm an Arts Club member. The free tickets are only good for admission on Monday or Tuesday nights. As I vaguely recall, last year when we was busy and we didn't know that we were VIP members. This year I knew that we were VIP members and could go straight to the front of the line. I forgot what it was like inside. So I happily invited Carolyn to the Christmas Market this year because it was free and she agreed because she's a Vancity Girlfriend. This year it seemed like everyone was waiting for this same exact day to go to the Christmas Market. Imagine being on a cramped skytrain with nowhere to go but instead it's an outdoor cage. There are lineups not just outside but inside as well. It was at least twice as busy as last year. I'm not sure if that's because it was the last Monday before Christmas. We were like sardines in a can at the market the whole time we were there. It was too packed to buy any tickets, food, or even walk. That was enough for me to try to get through from the entrance to the exit door. Phew! How did I escape the zoo. What a relief when we exited and were back on the street.
