Ok this is another slightly repetitive travelogue type entry (I should just be a traveling journalist, haha), so if don't like these just take a glance and move on... Vancouver B.C has a very international feel to it and tons and tons of Sushi places. A lot of cities have concentrated areas within the city such as Chinatown or Korean town, Vancouver has that but also has many stores and restaurants spread across the city. Crossing the bridge into the main downtown area with all the condos and buildings with the mountains to the foreground gave it the look somewhat a kin to Hong Kong I thought (never been there, seen pictures only).
Ate some cheap sushi, which is seriously all over and walked around broadway and passed through downtown and gastown which is the oldest part of the city which grew rapidly around a single pub. The port feel is similar to Seattle with all the huge cranes for loading the ocean liners at the port. It would be good to see more of this place and walk around the streets- it is fairly compact in the downtown area and definitely resonates a feeling of vibrance.
