Tuesday 29th August - Vancouver
The one area of Vancouver you want to avoid is Downtown Eastside. Around Hastings and Main. It's not 'nice' and, come on - you're on your holidays, you want things to be 'nice' don't you?
Anyway, I made sure to mark it on the map, so we could be certain to give it a miss.
Inevitably, inexorably, where did we fetch up on Tuesday afternoon? Yup, glancing sideways at the impressive Carnegie Library knowing a wrong turn had been taken somewhere, but not quite certain where or how to rescue the situation.
Turn left, walk purposefully, keep your eyes fixed on the middle distance and nothing bad will happen.
Later, we ate at the Raincity Grill. Nice wine.
The evening would've been even better if they'd put a tiny bit more thought into the vegetarian options.
