After saying goodbye to Stewart we went to cafe Artigiano for lattes. They were very tasty, yet to be honest, paled in comparison to the ultra thick ones we had at Blenz yesterday.
We decided to have a day of heavy duty walking and set off to an area called Gastown which houses the Steamclock, which is apparently the second most photographed clock in the world (after Big Ben). To be honest it was a bit of a disappointment as it was a bit small. We walked up to Dr. Sun Yat Sen's Chinese Garden which was beautiful. We took advantage of free internet access at the public library before walking the entire length of Robson Street, which is a very long way. At the end of Robson Street we had lunch in a Chinese restaurant called Hon's. We both had a vegetarian special which was a bargain at less than $20. We decided to walk lunch off in Stanley Park and took a stroll along the seawall to Brockton Point. By this time we were totally knackered and yet somehow made it back to the Carmana Plaza (our home for the next few days) to meet Steph's mum, Virginia and her partner David.
We relaxed for a while and picked at a spread of houmous and bits whilst catching up with the pair of them. Two of their friends Paul and Katherine came over for a visit and we had a really nice time chating with them. In the evening we went to a comedy club called Yuk Yuk's and one comedian who we think was called Rory Scholl was really good.
