Our flight started very early in the morning and this
together with the time shift let us arrive still in the
morning in Vancouver. Wow, after spending the winter in
Montréal and the last week on Prince Edward Island
and Nova Scotia it was almost a shock to see how green
the city was!

In the morning we watched a car crash for a movie
called "Chaos". Very interesting. The "crash" involved
police cars from Seattle. So you think you see the
streets of Seattle when you watch the film while in
reality it was filmed in Vancouver!

We went a little bit into Chinatown and visited the classical Chinese garden. An old Chinese man gave a very interesting talk about the Chinese philosophy behind the garden. I think Jessica, our little daughter disturbed the talk a bit even though it didn't seem to bother the old Chinese man too much. He talked a lot about the intellectuality of the garden and gave a lot of advice for healthy and happy living. I really felt kind of spiritually lifted afterwards.
After that we went to Jericho Beach. It's really very
beautiful there and I could have sat there the whole day!
You also have a very nice view of the skyline of
Vancouver from there.
Vancouver really is a very nice city. I would move there anytime!
