We had time this afternoon to walk around the port and along the boardwalk. The weather was great as all the locals kept telling us. We were lucky to have such great weather. Normally it would be grey and misting if not raining most of the time.
The hotel is very nice and being connected to the cruise port makes it special.
The path is dotted with informational signs but this one really caught my attention.
It was nice to walk and window shop and we never felt unsafe. On one side of the hotel, there is a float plane airport and the other side is a helipad.
The city is very big with many skyscrapers. People... NOISE!
Of course being a big city, there has to be some large and sometimes strange art work.
The hotel is connected by underground passage to a food court. There are a wide range of choices from Tim Hortons, McDonalds, Subway, to a verity of oriental restaurants. We ate here often because it was far less expensive than the restaurant in the hotel. Breakfast was donuts.
It seems that Microsoft has offices everywhere.
For all the pressures to conserve power it seems that does not change the habits of people in large cities. We are supposed to change our thermostats and save power other ways but most of the buildings had entire floors or even groups of floors completely lit up. I noticed the same thing in New York. Whole buildings with all the lights on all night long. It would be nice if they could turn off the lights for the 10 hours a day since no one was even in the building.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
