Vancouver May 27, 2006

After the chaotic experience in the DFW airport, we finally got on the flight and arrived safely at Vancouver Thur. night.  The rental car company couldn't find us a compact car, so we got a Crysler convertible instead with the same price.  It's the first time ever I've driven a convertible.  It's quite cool.

Friday morning, we had breakfast in the hotel and left for Stanly Park, the world's largest city park, in North Vancouver.  It was raining in the beginning, then the rain stopped.  We drove around with our top down for the rest of the day.  The park is full of trees and it's so nice to breath with the smell of forest.  Spent a couple of hours in the park and walked around a little bite.  Went to a Korean restaurant for lunch.  Gone down to the old-fashion street, sunset beach, canada place, gastown, and chinatown for the rest of the day.  It's good to have both forest and beach in an accessible distance in the city.  I think that's why people want to retire up here.

When we toured around the chinatown, we even found a little night market going on.  What a pleasant surprise.  However, the surprise was cut short due to the rain.  We headed back to the hotel and spent the rest of the night in hotel Jacuzzi and sauna..

I carried my Game Theory book with me all day long and didn't even read any single page of it… Felt kind of guilty…
