Day 2 Conference, Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden

Written on: Thursday August 13th, 2009

A journal entry from: Vancouver, Canada 2009

No photos from the day before, that was the 1st day of the conference. The conference is in a really posh hotel (probably where all the Twilight stars stay, thankfully they weren't filming those crappy movies when I was there!). They have two labradors who live at the hotel and hang out in the lobby. At first, I thought they were someone's guide dogs, but they just belong to the hotel. It's a really cool idea, especially since it's such an otherwise stuffy and upperclass looking place.

The conference finished early today (5pm) so I still had like 3 hours sunlight to see something afterwards. I chose the Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, which was a major rip off!  The garden was really small for my $8 entry (my photos are of the 1 nice part of it). The public park next door (which I thought was part of the garden i.e. that I had to pay to visit it) was much nicer!
