I've been in Vancouver for just over a week, taking lots of photos, and struggling to get some of them posted. I don't know why holidays are supposed to be relaxing -- I've been really busy, visiting some of my favourite places: the Art Gallery, which has a massive, ambitious exhibition about the role of 'mashup strategies' in the birth of modern culture, Granville Island, the Aquarium, the Capilano Suspension bridge, the Chinese garden... I've been to two concerts in the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra's New Music Festival -- this was one of the highlights (scroll down to in gloriam and click on the 'listen' icon), a workshop on self-publishing, including a very useful talk on marketing ebooks, three hockey games ("Go, Canucks, Go!" -- we WON two!) and an open practice.
And it's been surprisingly warm and dry most of the time (but today I had to buy an umbrella; it's that bad)!
