Pictures from Vancouver

Vancouver is amazing. I really hope Seattle becomes more like Vancouver in the next 20 years.
Here are some interesting facts about Vancouver
from the wiki
"Vancouver will be the host city for the 2010 Winter Olympics"
"Vancouver is the 2nd most expensive in Canada (after Toronto)"
"Vancouver consistently ranks in the top five in worldwide rankings of quality of life. Most recently, the city ranked first[19][20] in a worldwide quality of life survey conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit. In a similar survey by Mercer Human Resource Consulting, Vancouver ranked second in 2002 and 2003[21] and third in 2004. Vancouver has tied for first with the cities of Salzburg and Oslo among the UN chosen cities for highest living standards the last 4 years running. Condé Nast Traveler magazine named Vancouver the "Readers' Choice #1 City in the Americas" for 2005[22]. The city generally ranks first when compared to its Canadian and U.S. peers."
