I had the chance to visit Vancouver for a few days and leave my own city Berlin in order to discover a new one. The first recommendation I got: Bring suitable clothing for rainy days. I was spoiled with sunshine on my first day. It seemed this city was trying to make a good impression at first. On the second day the rain started and it lasted for almost a week. It looked a bit grey at times but it also made me aware of how the rain seemed to absorb the time. I was able to slow down and realize the romantic side of the rain again. So whenever the sky cleared up a bit I wandered around and enjoyed the moments in between, the silence of a busy city, the back alleys reminding me of a Marvel Comic and the skyscrapers in clouds.
