INTERNeX Canada: Culture Shock

Maybe you are going to going out? Partying and clubbing, are maybe one of the best options to see the differences between the countries and cultural issues. So, to say goodbye to the weekend: guide to survive in a Canadian Disco!

1) The schedule: the discos open at 10:00 more o less… until 2:00 or 3:00 pm. So, you have to keep in mind that all starts earlier. This schedule has a huge advantage… you can do a lot of things the following day!

2) Come back home: the busses stop running at 12:30 or 1:30. You can take the night bus, but the schedules are different. And be careful! If you are going to Downtown, Granville Street is closed for the cars and the buses… so the routes can change…

3) The prices: depends on your city of origin, tickets can be expensive for you… but there are some tricks. Sometimes you can get flyers for getting in for free. Other option is go to a Pub-Club Night. But don’t worry about it, in INTERNeX we know the best and cheapest places to go!

4) Dancing: well, you have to know one thing. Here in Canada, the influence of the hip-hop culture is very strong. The same thing happens in USA. Here, they are crazy for rap music and the people in the discos use to dance like the Afro-American people. It’s strange for us, because in Spain we have a lot of hip-hop influences (in cinema, music…) but we adapted them to an “European style”. When I see the people dancing like that, it always reminds meof an incredible Rize film… a documentary about krumping and clowing, two different styles of street dancing. You have to see it! Maybe you can get some ideas!

What do you think? Can you survive to a Canadian disco?

INTERNeX Canada: How was your weekend?

Last weekend Mercedes and I went to Whistler, an amazing ski resort near to Vancouver, where the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games took place. We passed two incredible days enjoying the authentic taste of the Canadian nature.  I already knew that Canada had incredible woods, but, believe me, you need to go there to see it by yourself.

First, we stopped in the Shannon Falls (at Shannon Falls Provincial Park)to see the third highest falls in the province of BC. The place, as you can see in the photos, is very beautiful. There was a lot of families having a picnic day and playing sports.

Then, we arrived at the HI-Hotel. We had a BBQ during de sundown with enormous burgers (really, the best hamburger I never tasted), Canadians beers, and a great company.

Afterwards, we went to Moe Joe’s, one of the most famous clubs in the village. There was a pool table and a dance floor with DJs. Mercedes and I spent the night dancing and jumping with the other people.

But the next morning, we didn’t have time for sleep, because we had to take a bus to do trekking. Do you know something about trekking? Well, we didn’t. Somebody told us something about to be hanging from a cord. Ouch… I was a little scared. All my life I have been afraid of heights. Mercedes was very happy; she is braver than me. But, believe, was one of the best things I’ve never done! Hanging so high, gliding so fast, among the enormous trees, with the beautiful forest under your feet…you can feel like flying!

 

Finally, we went to the village to eat something and take the bus. We were so tired but very happy. In Vancouver, we came back to our houses with the feeling that we were we were in love with Canada more than ever.

Thanks to the organizers to invite us! If you want to go to Whistler, please contact with our PR Team!

 

Cheers,

Clara.
