Vancouver Photo Essay

I remember tweeting from Vancouver that I found the city very pretty but a tad dull. I was probably anticipating the loucher attractions of the Asian metropolis, but I hadn't been in Hong Kong for long before I'd started to yearn rather belatedly for the the wholesomeness of British Columbia.

That said, I never felt more uneasy about my personal safety than I did in the Chinatown streets around my hotel in Vancouver. For a city that tops so many 'live-ability' tables, this one contains a surprising number of vagabonds, many of them sporting a decidedly un-wholesome, unbalanced look.
