Wearing out my shoes in Vancouver (II)

Chinatown -- A rather laidback affair that I enjoyed quite a bit.















Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Park, which is not to be confused with Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, which we also visited.









This is the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, where we learned that in Ming Dynasty China, houses and gardens were deliberately designed with zombie control in mind.

































In the great SSP tradition of photographing your food...

Thanks for your comments, everyone.

DWest -- I really loved the garden and park. Together, they provided a fantastic focus for the entire district.
