Floor in the Umberto Al Porto Italian Restaurant in the Gastown area of Vancouver (where I had a great meal last night). The building, called The Hudson House was built in 1895.
Vancouver, by the way, is a fabulous town. It’s practically surrounded by water, there’s a range of mountains just to the north. Many of the high-rises are well designed; they seem to sparkle. It’s got that San Francisco “I am beautiful” vibe that gladdens the hearts of both natives and visitors. People are great. Being here is a perfect way to end this trip. I did a TV appearance this morning with Fanny Kiefer on her “Studio Four” morning TV show, and that was my last official act on this 3-week tour. Boy am I relieved.
