The weather was perfect, we walked around, checked out Chinatown, the number of homeless people was incredible in the area, maybe paranoid, I thought someone was following us for a while, but all was OK, from there we went to see some gardens and then walked by a soccer practice facility were we stopped for a while just to rest our feet. There was a lot of people going towards the stadium, it was a Canadian Football game that night, the BC Lions were playing, it would have been nice to see it , but not something I would do at home. We continued our walk, there was an Asian festival near the Art Museum , we got some treats and listened for a while before moving on to get dinner. We had seen a Japanese restaurant earlier, we came back to it and had a bowl of rice with pork, the bowl was incredibly hot, it stayed hot for about 15 minute , all the while continuing to cook the rice, making it crunchy, it was a new meal for me but not one I will search out again as a must have. After hours of walking we took the Sky-train back and still hungry made ourselves another sandwich and rested for the night.
Carmen - As I walk around Vancouver I am reminded of New York, all the different languages being spoken around me, the diversity and the different communities. I loved going to their Chinatown and getting to taste the different foods. Their shops are very deep - they appear to be a small shop but go deep into the old buildings. Traveling by bike limits what we can actually buy and take home with us, so I keep taking pictures and keep eating the food!
