Screeched In

Hey guys,

So we made is safe and sound after over 12 hours of travelling.  3 planes later, we show up in St. John’s and IT’S SNOWING!   ICK

It’s gone away now, and it was fine anyways, since I was so tired – we got to our hotel room and I slept for about 3 hours, we went for dinner and I came home and slept for 16 more!!   There is a 4.5 hour time difference here, so hopefully now I’m caught up!

Have seen much yet except this…

and our view from our room

DSC_1329 St. John’s is known for their beautiful colored houses.

DSC_1332 DSC_1333 D mentioned these were lower cost housing type houses, so the real ones we’ll see will be much more fun!!

First thing D bought when we got here…

Pineapple Crush!!!!!!!!!!!!!  which I think you can only get in Newfoundland!!!  It’s  good, but probably the sweetest drink you could ever imagine...

Trying to wake up here now (it’s 11:30am –BC time is 7:00am) so we’re both still feeling off!!  Then it’s off to get some groceries to stock up the room, do some sight seeing,  a BBQ at our old roomates place (who moved here last year) and then… (pray for me) a night out drinking with a bunch of Dave’s Newfie friends…   A) I don’t drink  much – one drink and I’m done  B) There is a very good chance I will have to get “screeched in” to become an honorary Newfie…

Here is an example of what getting screeched in looks like… (please watch it’s very entertaining)

It includes; trying to speak in Newfie Slang, while wearing clothing they choose, eat a capeline (fish), drink a shot of screech (gross rum) and then kiss a dead, cold cod fish.

 

Please pray for me, this could be an interesting evening!!

  5. Now I feel home sick! You're staying in the perfect location! A great place for Breakfast is called "the bagel cafe" on Duckworth street (at least it was my go to 6 years ago!) and don't worry about the screech in- it's so fun and totally hilarious! I hope you take pictures!

    Have a great time!
