An August 2005 trip

Quote: What I've been up to in the past 3 weeks...
The following weekend, my family and I took another weekend trip--this time to North Lake Tahoe. During my time there, I biked along the Truckee River from Tahoe City to Squaw Valley, checked out the arts and wine festival, went shopping, and saw the Shakespeare on the Lake performance of Macbeth. A few days later, I went up to Seattle to visit friends (Alex E. from JET, Julia and Steven, whom I met backpacking in China last summer), went sightseeing (Pike's Market, REI) and to my friends' wedding (Kristy and Sean whom I know from Tahoe). Seeing that Vancouver was only 4 hours away, I took a bus out there to see more friends (Catherine and Alison who weren't in JET but in Japan the same years I was; and Alex V. whom I met backpacking in China last summer).
Vancouver is a great city with lots to do and easy access. We walked and swam in Lynn Canyon, rockclimbed in Squamish, cycled through Stanley Park, Granville Island, Chinatown, and watched fireworks on the beach. Not to mention great restaurants and perfect weather everyday! By the way, I also have to give a shout out to Farid, Jim and Diep whom I saw in San Francisco (all from JET) and Rosemary (ex-camp counselor, ex-roommate, ex-pat in Bangkok last year), whom I met up with in San Mateo.
