Vancouver (Black & White)

In May 2001, I had to travel abroad to renew my work visa so stay in the USA. The easiest way to do this is to go abroad. No need to go to Germany, Canada would do. So I spent two wonderful spring days in this gorgeous city.

The first day I spent in downtown, as I had to go in and out the American embassy, to take care of my paperwork. The second day, I rented a bicycle, and I was riding through Stanley park. The route out of the park leads directly into the False Creek Bicycle tour - a beautiful ride along the water, away from cars. Vancouver is a great city for bicyclists.

Just hover over the images to learn what they're about.
