Back in 2007, I was in Vancouver for a meeting, followed by hanging out for Northern Voice. I had to go straight from the airport to the meeting, which was down in the east side of downtown along Railway. After the meeting was over, I was waiting to meet up with Brian, so was lugging my suitcase and gear up to Hastings. I knew it was a colourful neighbourhood, but I must have been a little obvious as an out-of-towner. I wound up waiting in a little Vietnamese cafe, where I could be slightly less conspicuous with my suitcase and camera pack.
Heading back to Vancouver for a few days next week. Definitely looking forward to it.
