This month I’m working nights in downtown Vancouver. I noticed a surreal aspect of being there. The views are amazing. No matter what I am looking at, it just doesn’t feel real.
The city was asleep at 5pm. No one was out and it was already dark. But everywhere I looked, I saw beauty.
I’ve traveled to other major cities through the night. Each of them equally beautiful. Calgary, Edmonton, Seattle, Los Angles, Sacramento, even Twin Falls Idaho. All of them are magnificent spectacles as you approach and drive through.
I forget how unique Vancouver is. As much as I avoid traveling into there, I can still appreciate what it has to offer the skyline. Perhaps I need to spend some more time here enjoying the nightlife. We’ll see. It’s hard to leave the suburbs and country life that I have become accustomed to.
