Today, Like for the past few days of our trip, woke up at 7 and did our daily morning routine. Today’s agenda was to receive a tour from Michelle, the person we met yesterday and her partner Nat. Nat recently moved to Vancouver form LA and Is in the same profession as Michelle and because he came from America, the youths were able to easily relate and communicate with him. The tour focused on the Skytrain stations and the development that happens on the station and the area around it such as the condos we saw rising everywhere even on the outermost suburban areas of Vancouver. During Michelle’s and Nat’s tour I really enjoyed the intervals we had on the skytrain. While on the skytrain you are legitimately on the sky cutting its winds with speed. It realy differs from the lightrails and buses in SF. And because we have week long passes for Vancouver’s Translink Transportation we are usually traveling by skytrain so this trip’s traveling would be a lot better in scenic terms. After the tour we went to a mall to have food court food for lunch and after that we went to Lonsdale Quay’s market.
To get to Lonsdale Quay we had to travel by seabus, a contractor’s service for Translink. In the market there these huge chess and checker pieces that caught my interest so we played a game. But during our game we were noticed by passerby seniors and they gave us tips on how to beat each other. An interesting way between interactions with youth and seniors. We didn’t spend long at the market and later returned to Richmond to get dinner and went home. That concludes my report on today’s activities.
