Vancouver: Getting ready for its Olympic close-up

What a city. If it wasn't that far, I'd definitely visit it. If someone can take a picture of our trams running there? It would be great.

Oh I miss Vancouver. I tried to take my girlfriend up there this summer but we didn't make it. One of the best things about living in Seattle was weekends in Vancouver. Great thread raggedy13
