INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend?

It’s such a beautiful day!

OMG! It isn’t supposed that Vancouver is a raining city? Today the sun is shining more than ever and the rest of the weekend will get better, as we can see at the weather forecast.

Impossible to stay at home, not? Well, start to preparing your shorts and sunglasses because we have a lot of plans for you!

Vancouver International Burlesque Festival

Do you like burlesque? I think Vancouverites love it, judging by the strange customs that the people use to wear during a typical Monday at 14:00 in the middle of Grandville St.

The burlesque, a kind of cabaret or variety show, nowadays, has emerged from the pubs in the suburbs to become a very famous fashion due to celebrities like Dita Von Teese. If you would like to attend it, you can buy the tickets in the following link.

  • When: May 2-4, 2013
  • Where: Depends on the day. Check the website for more info (click on 2013 schedule).

Visit the Contemporary Art Gallery (CAG)

If a large number of semi-naked woman are too much for you, here you have a more relaxing plan: visit one of the most important art galleries in Vancouver. The CAG it’s a free space with international recognition, which advocates for news talents and the public access to art. One of the most awesome exhibitions is As It Comes for the Canadian artist Raymond Boisjoly. The title of this exhibition is the title of the one of his pieces too, which appears at the Yaletown-Roundhouse Station as you can see at the picture below.

  • When: Tuesday to Sunday 12 – 6 pm, FREE.
  • Where: 555 Nelson Street, Vancouver, British Columbia MAP.

Take advantage! It’s such a beautiful day!

INTERNeX Canada: Clara says “Whats Up?”

Hi guys!

My name is Clara Garcia, and I’m the new PR Intern. I’m an Advertising and Public Relation student. I’m from Mérida, a very beautiful city in the Southwestern part of Spain, with a large amount of old Roman monuments and famous for its ham, red wine and other delicious things.

The last four years I’ve lived in Madrid, so I love big cities and I know people from all around the world. About my hobbies, I’m very interested in good films, music and visiting museums and art galleries. I’m very outgoing and cheerful; I don’t like being alone for long periods of time, so I want to make friends as soon as I can!

Now that I’ve arrived at Vancouver I can say it’s a wonderful city! I was a little scared at the beginning, but Canadians are incredible kind with foreigners and there are cool shops and interesting places everywhere, especially in Downtown. One very curious place is the Steam Clock (as you can see in the photo).

Now I’m concentrated on improving my English and having a lot of experiences so please, don’t hesitate to add me on Facebook or ask me anything you want.

Hope to see you soon!
