I am in Vancouver, and have been for a week. The hotel has been very nice to work in, and I have had some delicious meals.
Today I went to the Aquarium (and I saw two raccoons in Stanley Park!) and walked down Robson on the way home. I stopped at the Konbinniya store to get a couple onigiri and ice tea for a snack later.
The store clerk served me in Japanese. I kept answering in English. It’s the only place, other than Sasano HQ, that this ever happens.
