Vancouver Objects

Vancouver wasn”t all about food. Other interesting things, unique to that city presented themselves.

Let the walkin” man walk.wm_02.jpg

The walking man is ubiquitous; we don”t even notice him. But in Vancouver, the walking man took new forms.

And this chap has picked up a companion.

Rain

Though it didn”t rain while we were there, Vancouver gets lots of rain at other times. Most buildings, especially new buildings, have erected glass awnings, rather than the traditional canvas awnings, to allow precious light to penetrate to the street. I didn”t see any canvas awnings in Vancouver, while in Victoria those are the only kind I saw.

Finally, this sign was in our hotel elevator. Our hotel was populated mainly by tour groups of large Eastern Europeans
