Paua (Haliotis spp) – edible univalve mollusks of rocky shores that have flattened, ear-shaped shells with a row of small holes for breathing. They have a strong grip on rocks but move about at night grazing on seaweed. It is an important traditional food source for New Zealand’s indigenous Maori people and it is now considered a scarce delicacy throughout New Zealand and the world.

New Zealand based Soul Paua are currently in Vancouver playing at events running alongside the XXI Winter Olympic Games. This Music Award nominated group was founded in 2001 and its compositions are strongly influenced by Maori and Polynesian culture. In fact, the band sings a contemporary mix of English and Maori language. Soul Paua is also well known for performing some of the best contemporary Polynesian music. read more »

Little smurfs as far as the eye can see. We’re served breakfast and lunches are provided. It’s nothing fancy, but always sooo tasty! read more »

Eight months ago I heard a radio advertisement saying that Coca-cola was running a contest where Canadians could be selected to run with the Olympic Torch. I completed the basic application and was required to write an essay on how I live a green and sustainable lifestyle that aligns with the core values of Coca-cola and the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Working for a company like Icebreaker provided a portion of my essay but the real content of my essay came down to my everyday practices such as living in a high density, geo-thermal building, using a car share program, taking public transit, a being a board member for an alternative transportation organization. I submitted my essay in mid-August and by October I received the amazing news that I was selected to be a Torch Bearer in Oliver, a small town in interior British Columbia. read more »
