Dear Vancouver

It was love at first sight, really it was. I have scoured this continent for the better part of the last 15 years and have not yet found a city that romances me as much as you do. Sure, you showed up to our first date in your finest clothes, all that glorious sunshine and clear blue skies. I know there is a cloudier, wetter side of you. But really. Really, you are just so fine, I imagine I can handle your off days.

I like that you are so worldly and well-traveled. It’s a turn-on, yes. At every street corner I hear a symphony of Italian, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, French and German, feeding me authentic food from all over the world.
Is it true that I can have city and mountains and beach all together in one love affair? Is it true that you will take excellent care of me in sickness and in health?
Vancouver, you sound like a keeper.

So, let’s discuss this rain thing.

    Hey Steph!

    Love your Vancouver exposé!

    Vancouver will be HOME (or Europe) if Obama doesn’t win on the 4th of November. I’m absolutely serious.
    Working hard for the Obama campaign down here in Florida (Data Captain), in the County of the Infamous Hanging Chads.

    Hope you are well — I miss ya! — really enjoy your blog so much.
