Did/Been: Did I mention about the pink everywhere? Blooms yes, and then a flash mob of 500 people at the art gallery doing a Bollywood style dance routine with hot pink umbrellas. FANTASTIC!
For those who love to read, the main library has 6 floors. One entire floor is dedicated to art. J and I stocked up on books yesterday.
The sound of a saxophone, a mysterious curvy cobblestone, and a multitude of fairy lights tempted us into exploring Gastown, one of the neighborhoods in the city. For those who don't know Canada, we're now on the west end, over California. As a Canadian I was shocked to find palm trees in my country. Who knew? The weather here is mild. There is a rain forest with amazing jungle trees. Mountains and ocean surround the city so it's not hard to get to the beach. Skiing isn't too far away either, just a bit further north.
Feeling: We've been staying in a hotel apartment for the past few weeks and I finally feel ready to search out a permanent place. It's so beautiful here I find my self silently saying 'thank you, thank you' all the time.
