A short Canadian holiday: in pictures, II
Vancouver. Two words: good food. Cheap sushi and fabulous Ethiopian food.
- Gastown: the group, us around a statue, and a very strangely-formed building.
- Nyala, a fabulous Ethiopian restaurant: on our way there, Brad and Alice, Jeff/Amy/Jeff, and the carnage. Oh, and Andy trying not to explode.
- Heather and Jeff at Shabusen.
- A very strange sign. Another.
- Various shots of the skyline: Amy, Andy and Heather, Heather, Jess, random mountains, Heather's silhouette, and Jess standing on a rather large tree trunk. Also, a couple of random shots at dusk with no one in them.
- Jeff Alami imitating the statue.
- A really enormous old tree in Stanley Park: yes, that's a real tree, and we're all standing inside it.
If you only look at one picture, take a look at the one of us standing inside the tree. If I hadn't seen that tree with with my own eyes—and stood inside it—I don't think I would have believed it from the pictures.
Anyway. You've probably wondered about the impersonal nature of the updates this week. It's nothing terrible, but dragon*con is coming up. Depending on the state of my exhaustion and stability of net access, there may or may not be entries before Tuesday.
If there are, though, expect commentary on all things dragon*con. I'm interested in not just the 'con events, but also the people who would attend an event such as this. I'll probably find all kinds of content fodder. Then again, as someone pointed out to me recently, just about everything's grist for the mill these days.
