Vancouver – a beautiful city

Vancouver is a very clean and beautiful city.  It is also a rare thing in a fast growing city: it is surrounded by majestic mountains (that are snow-capped in the Winter) and the sea so it seems that from every street you can look up and see the beauty of nature, plus the architecture is stunning too, both old and new. Opposite our hotel (the Fairmont Pacific Rim – highly recommended!) is the Convention Centre and even this is attractive, with a roof which is covered in wild grassland (it’s a big roof…) and lots of wildlife. Here are just a few pictures that illustrate the point.
