    wife and wierd friend Darin @ City Hall

    Favorite thing: As an architect I was very anxious to see the City Hall building because I had seen it in so many books and movies. It is all exposed concrete with a huge interior atrium and glass roofs over some of the meeting spaces which although no doubt illegal, it was nonetheless very fun to climb out on these roofs and look down at the people and furniture far below. I have also heard from several people that Victoria Island is very beautiful but we were only in the city for a weekend and didn't get a chance to go there.

    Fondest memory: Driving around in the rain observing (only) the many soaking wet prostitutes in the red light district

    Favorite thing: Go to the big city park on the water.

    Fondest memory: As we entered the city I thought I was transported back to the early 70's because of all the same-style apartment complexes in the city. I thought they were quite ugly, however to this day I can't get them out of my mind, and now looking back maybe they weren't so ugly?

    Favorite thing: Vancouver has a large and bright skyline, I have never seen a city with so many 35 story buildings, but they can't seem to get any higher than that, except this building here.

    Sheraton Wall Centre

    Favorite thing: This is the Sheraton Wall Centre taken during my stay. I was on the 31st floor and took this picture out of my window.
