You must be back from the conference by now. I've been so busy with work
lately, and my family has been away in the USA so I'm cooking and cleaning all
myself (Maggi says, big deal - I know). And also, I was away in Oman last
weekend for a caving adventure. You can read about my previous trips there at
Vancouver is one of my favorite cities. I like running around the huge park
there. I'm usually in Vancouver in the winter when the skiing is good on
Grouse Mountain, so I like going up there for the snow, but Vancouver gets so
much rain the snow washes away early in the spring, and I imagine it's better
for hiking (in the rain) while you're there now. I also like taking the ferry
across the harbor and visiting the shops, coffee houses, and microbreweries on
the other side. A brewery is a place for brewing beer, and a micro-brewery
brews just enough beer to serve just a small local area. Because
microbreweries focus on quality over quantity, the beer in them, especially on
the west coast of Canada and the USA, is very good.
Did you try the bungie jumping, Michael?
Sorry to have been so out of touch, but hope to see as many webheads as
possible this afternoon at noon GMT.
