You are so right about the culture shock, first the heavy traffic in BC after a month in Alaska , and now Vancouver after Mabel Lake ....
Hasta la vista en Guate!!!

Vancouver

An other day in the big city....I need to get out of here !!!!! It is a beautyful city , but I am a country boy, I feel at home out on the mountains , the rivers, nature in general . I believe that nature brings out the good side of the human being , the city not necesarly ...it's not our original habitat ...

Anyway, here a few more shots from Vancouvers very impressive skyline











For lunch we met Logan, aka oldtrout; he knows quiet a bit about Vancouvers history and the chat and walk around downtown was very interesting . Thx for lunch , Logan






And at the end , I was still able to find some nature in the big city

you actually sound a bit down being in the city...get out I agree cities get old fast, that's why we live in the suburbs. We both rather be away from people rather in the middle of chaos. How much longer until you get back on the road?

We went to the north shore; now we have one more stop here in BC before we are heading down to Seattle.

Back in the US

After a short and rainy ride this morning we made it to the border and crossed into the lower 48

Pretty soon the sky cleared up and by the time we got to Seattle the sun was shining

Seattle

I really liked and enjoyed Seattle , a beautiful city ! And once again we were lucky with the weather, it couldn’t have been any better . Blue sky every day …we are so lucky…LIFE IS GOOD
Here a few pictures from all my walking around the city














Definitely the best market since we left Mexico

We went to Granville Island with the intention to go to the market, but after walking around for a few blocks, we tuned around....too many people, too many tourists ;-)
