I want to live in Vancouver or Montreal.

Here's Denver. I had a hard time finding any photos! I guess they don't want anyone to know how ugly the city really is! but to be kind, I'm posting the most glamorous ones I found. At least you can see the mountains in this first one...it's a funky shot, they look much closer then that every day:



The Pepsi Center is on the far right on this one, practically unrecognizable. My college is right across the street! I can practically touch the arena.



Here's the Pepsi Center, if it works. I saw U2 here--lousy sound except for hockey games!

I Saint Paul, too. It's just not as photogenic as Minneapolis.

Didn't you like my pictures?

I'm feeling bored, so just to tick Angel off and persuade her to stay on the West coast, here are some more pics of Vancouver...

Overhead shot of downtown taken a long time ago before many of the buildings that exist now were built:


Looking towards Granville Island harbour:


Looking towards English Bay and Stanley Park:


Looking towards downtown from Kitsilano, where I used to live:


Looking towards downtown from Gerico Beach:

Finally, found a couple pics of our library that was blown up in the Shwarzenegger movie. It's so big, that these shots can't duplicate what it really looks like, but here you go...

The first half of it:

times like this i wish i was a rangers fan instead of an islanders fan... the hempstead/uniondale, long island are isn't the most impressive area skyline wise... and the coliseum blows... but it's got character, or so they say

I miss my Saint Paul - and will really miss it for the playoff games.

Target Center SUCKS! Especially when you compare it to Excel! But - as long as U2 is promoted by SFX (which owns the Target Center) - they will play across the river.

Tommy Hilfiger Amp @ Jones Beach is a lousy name. And I will always call it Jones Beach. What a great venue.

Wait AvsGirl...you go to school right across from the arena!? Maybe one day Skoula will get lost on the way to work and end up in the office where you work, asking for directions.

SKOULA: I--wait, where am I??
AVSGIRL: Oh my god! You must have post-concussion syndrome or something! I'll take care of you!
SKOULA: Wha--

okay that made no sense...

This is fun! I MSG is awesome. I've always wanted to watch the Rangers play there, though they suck now.

Here's a foggy day in February, viewed from West Vancouver looking into downtown. Imagine being on the top floors of those buildings looking down across that bed of cloud! You can see the top parts of Lion's Gate Bridge peaking through near the middle and the right of the photo:



And here a couple not so foggy days taken at Kits beach (a block from my old place *sigh*):

I have spent many hours hoping that he'd get hungry for a McDonalds or Taco Bell and that someone would point out that "there's one in the campus."

Or maybe someone would tell him about the delicious patty melts at The Merc and he'd get lost and come in for directions. He'd probably wander into Advising first, but since they refer any and all questions to our office....
