First Stop in Canada
Greetings to everyone again! The train trip from Portland OR to Vancouver BC went really well - LOTS of beautiful scenery.
Vancouver is a beautiful, walkable, very fun city to experience - I highly recommend a visit! I've been hiking around the city for several days now, enjoying gorgeous views of bay and ocean, great food and wines (of course!), friendly people, and beautiful weather.
I've been staying at the YWCA on Beatty Street, just south of a station on the excellent lightrail system, and can't say enough good about it; great place to 'hang your hat' whilst in Vancouver.
Tomorrow (Friday 8/19) I head to Montreal, arriving Tuesday (23rd).
With best wishes to all -
