Back in Vancouver for the latest trip to Asia. Left a cold and snowy Calgary for a wet and rainy Vancouver. Wrong - that should say warm and sunny Vancouver! The grass is green and there is no white stuff in sight other than on the mountain tops where it should be. Flight over from Calgary was relaxing - plane was half full even though the check-in machine said we were on stand-by when we got our boarding passes. Checked in to the Vancouver Airport Fairmont Hotel. This is a great spot to spend a night while in transit. After we checked in, we went for a walk around the airport in search of the famous Cadbury mini-eggs. Our hunt was successful. We had a super meal in the hotel lounge - the highlight was definitely the mushroom and potato soup. We have to re-create this when we get home. Tomorrow is a big travel day. Need to get up at 3.40 am to get ready for our flight to San Francisco and then its thirteen and a half hours to Shanghai. I suspect many mini-eggs will get consumed on the way.
