Glenbow (a museum) on Stephen Street sounded interesting for a visit, as one of the features was an exhibition of the street photographer, Fred Herzog.

Fred Herzog was a Canadian immigrant from Germany. He took a lot of nice Vancouver street photos in colour.
The generation of our parents would love and miss those days by looking at these photos.
We can appreciate the neon on Vancouver’s streets – it was really cool and bright.

By the way, it sounds like he referred to the “so-called holocaust” in an interview with the Globe and Mail and it became controversial…

My hubby also wrote about it.

Where is everybody? Indoors? It’s a Saturday morning, but no people hanging around?
When we entered a mall, we found some.

Late lunch at the Metropolitan Grill:

Calamari Really delicious salad with real smoked salmon

Calamari was good and the salad with real chunks of smoked salmon was really good!

We took a rest at our hotel and then went for dinner @ Wa’s Japanese.

I was actually looking forward to having ramen, but at this moment, I wanted to have udon. They’ve got a variety on the menu and the service was good. We’d love to come back again.
