Vancouver rerevisited

I went to Vancouver today for a change of scenery, brought on by the fact that there were only 2 chairs open on each mountain today (although I’d already decided to go yesterday as the forecast was for lots more rain). It was very nice to see somewhere else other than Whistler, and reassuring to walk around a town where everyone isn’t wearing a ski jacket..

My only agenda today was to see if there were any boards on offer at the boardshops on 4th avenue and check out Chinatown. The chinese supermarket was an experience :) where else can you find frozen goat meat and lower intestines? Also I went to the Sun Yat Sen gardens (or something like that) and took a bunch of pictures, which was quite cool.

After my supermarket shopping we went and had a curry in a proper tacky curry house which reminded me a lot of some places in Birmingham! The others I was with were craving for it and the one Indian restaurant in Whistler is (unsurprisingly) extortionate.

After that it was a loooooong drive home. Funny thing also, whilst we were in Van it was dry pretty much all day but once we got within 10kms of Whistler we hit the wall of water again…
