Saw this and thought it would be the perfect assigment for a Canadian TBEXer:
In celebration of YVR's (Vancouver Airport) 80th anniversary, we are looking for someone to live at YVR for 80 days and share the stories of the airport with the world. That's right. Live here. Sleep here. Eat here. Shop here. For 80 consecutive days.

Last century, it rendered copper, zinc and gold. This century, it’s producing understanding of life underground. All thanks to a $14.7 million makeover.

Once the site of the Empire’s…Continue
