vancouver, april 2009

Lucky me, I caught one of my favorite destinations in a good, sunny mood.

For now, just a few pics of the nice side of Vancouver, of which there are very many. There’s an unsavory side, but that’s reserved for a later post.  The highlights included a weekday afternoon bike ride through Stanley Park, across the Lions Gate Bridge, along English Bay and False Creek, sushi at Tojo’s (my once a year splurge), and plenty of beautiful views. Didn’t make it to Whistler, didn’t do the snowboard shopping I said that I would do, but I took care of lots of other business, haircut, dentist, stuff like that. And I ate fabulously, the city has the most authentic Asian food outside of Asia for a reasonable price.  And hey, no rain until the night before I left, with warm, almost summer-like weather.
