Quick point, while I steal Karl's computer, mostly for Lyn's benefit: the Skytrain is like the S-bahn, although it covers less of the city. Even has the happy woman's voice telling you your stops. I was waiting for her to say "bitte" in such a way as made Ryan fall in love with her.
And the Bay store downtown is ridiculously huge, with a Skytrain stop IN THE BUILDING! Dude.
We dragged Ari's luggage all over downtown Vancouver, which made us very conspicuous tourists. But we've met some of the nicest people ever, often as a result of our sleepy companion and her luggage. I'm very thankful that we had the lovely Laura acting as our tour guide.
More later, including a Vancouver edition of the Coffee House Junkie's Review.
I need to get to Murchees in Victoria, and do a Tea House Junkie's Review.
