How many wonderful things can I say about Vancouver. It’s a bit like Seattle, but I like it a lot better. Why? The trains. They just built a new line, so unmanned subway trains are in lots of great places. The West End was my favorite. I got myself out of the tourist district by the water. That was awful. Lots of overpriced … tourist stuff. But the West End was superb – Korean and Japanese restaurants – restaurants from all over the world. Coffee shops. Loved it. The weather was lovely.
