A really enjoyable first day with the only slight downside being the time it took us to actually get into Kamloops. The company does not own the train track so has to stop every now and again to let goods trains pass.
The upshot of this was that we arrived later than expected and after grabbing something to eat we were limited time wise as we had to be up early the next day.
We had done our research and had found out that there were interesting back alley murals, which were near the hotel so we decided to look for them. It seems strange to say we spent the evening wandering down the back alleys but the art was excellent and certainly brightened up the area which would normally be quite dark and unappealing. It seems a shame that more towns don't follow this example.
Although if you walk around Manchester, murals are starting to brighten up some areas.
Another surprising thing about the trip so far was the heat; this had been unexpected. Kamloops had been over 110 degrees in the day and was still 100 degrees when we went for the walk at about 8 o'clock in the evening.
Anyway it was time for an early night and to get ready for the second leg of the train journey.
