Empress Hotel in Victoria - $$ i assume

I have very good friends who live in Victoria(Peruvian friends, kids were born in Canada). I had helped the family out with a business situation, my friend pablo was going to drive to seattle to take care of paperwork and finalize financials, but i decided instead to go to Victoria to finish up the deal as an excuse to visit them and the new house and see how the kids have grown(also an excuse to go to a tb meetup..mentioned later). I arrived on Vancouver Island on saturday the 18th and left on monday the 20th. When i visit them they pick me up from the ferry and show me around in the car, by bike, or on foot.  The oldest daughter(paula)=(pow-la) gave up her room for me :) and slept in grandmas(abuelas) room.

We had a nice weekend and the kids cried when i left. Always one of the toughest things for me is visiting with friends around the world and not being able to visit again easily the next weekend especially tough when the kids ask me when i will return. (examples = Victoria, recent trip to Colombia and my little munchkin(in Frankfurt). I left my friends, wishing i had more time and hoping to come back again soon(time and $ = gas and $$ for ferry make it so i don't get there nearly enough). So they dropped me off at the ferry terminal and I ran onto the ferry, i mean i was the last person on and they pulled up the ramps after i passed over them. I was now on my way to vancouver to meetup with the TB crew for some adventures :)   .... see later in this blog....

In case they ever read this, i hope my friends know how much i appreciate their hospitality and friendship, and that the kids know its never easy to say goodbye and i wish as much as they do that i could stay longer ;)
