Vancouver, BC, Canada - 17th May 2008

By: AbbyB

Today Abby and her sister showed me Vancouver.

We took the Skytrain there.  It is an automated train that runs every five minutes or so, and it travels on tracks that are raised high above the ground.

Us toyvoyagers shared a seat.


We got off the Skytrain and the first thing we saw was Science World.  It is an interactive centre for families and it teaches all about different types of science.  Inside the dome there is a huge IMAX theatre.  The building is reminiscent of EXPO 86.



Where all the cranes are will be the Olympic Village in less than two years.



The water you see behind me is called False Creek.  It's called that because it's not a creek at all, but more of an inlet.


This is one of many mini ferries that carries passengers for a small fee to different places along False Creek.


Behind me you can see BC Place (left) which is the football stadium, home to the BC Lions, and it is where the opening ceremonies of the Olympics will be held, and GM Place (Right) which is the the hockey stadium, home to the Canucks.


From here you can see some of the mountains to the North of the city.
