I went to Vancouver this weekend to attend the wedding of one of my high school friends (Nancy Lee, now known as Nancy Chen). I would have loved to have spent more time there... It's a very nice city, with lots to do and see. As it was, we were able to witness (briefly) some fireworks and the aftermath of the gay pride parade.
One thing I've learned, is to always book your flights/hotel as far in advance as possible. We had no idea that this past weekend would be one of the busiest of the year in Vancouver... Therefore there was fairly slim pickin's for rooms. We ended up staying at the Fairmont airport hotel the first night. It was very nice, but *way* expensive.
I think my ass may be permanently shaped like the driver's seat of my truck.
