The next morning we headed down to Pikes Market where they have the very first Starbucks store and Pikes Place Fish Market, where they throw the fish around.
In the afternoon we headed out for Vancouver and the border crossing was pretty much a non-event, we didn't even get out of the car. It was like a tollgate, but it took a little longer than just paying tollgate money. Speaking about tollgates, we've travelled 2000km, and without passing through one! Eventually, we have arrived in Vancouver after lots and lots of travelling. We are staying in a really nice 2 bedroom apartment on the 21st floor in downtown Vancouver, a marked difference to the budget places so far.
We did some grocery shopping last night and after finding all the prices astronomical we found the upper lever of the shop. Everything downstairs was organic and expensive while upstairs was normal food at much better prices.
All this travelling takes its toll on the body, just look at poor Dylan at the restaurant in LA before we left.
Today we are going to do some driving around the Vancouver suburbs to get a feel for the city and see what the houses look like.
