Arriving In Vancouver


The train pulled into Vancouver this morning right on schedule. After an hour's leisurely amble through the city from the train station to my hotel, I am settled into a room on high floor (thanks for the upgrade!) with great views of the city and the water.

A Sunny Day In Vancouver


Spent a glorious summer's day walking around much of the city of Vancouver. The sheer physical beauty of the place is stunning. Like Sydney, Cape Town, and San Francisco, there are spectacular vistas over the water and they are often framed--as in the latter two cities--against a backdrop of impressive mountains. Moreover the people here are friendly, the politics progressive, and the scope of the place very manageable.
