Hello Vancouver

Bear sightings small

Went on a big adventure yesterday to buy a new cord to connect my camera to the computer so I can share pictures. I thought I was looking for an electrical store at 'Cat' Mall, and that's what I kept asking everyone, but turns out it was called 'Cap' as in Capilano. I made it there no thanks to some unhelpful bus drivers and weird bus routes (ok maybe it was not their fault...) but I am appreciative of some other helpful drivers and citizens. I also bought a big map of Vancouver. I am trying to get my head around this big new place and seeing where things are in relation to each other really helps.

PS Lots of pretty scenery and quirky Canadian things to share but for starters I thought this sticker on a street sign was great. Apparently the bears do come down from the mountains in Spring and Fall looking for easy food in peoples rubbish, so it's not uncommon to see them... something to look forward too :)
