We are getting closer.
We arrive, and dock on One Canada Place.
Ah, the Vancouver skyline early in the morning!
Mark and Bonny swing by and say one final goodbye. And before we leave we say goodbye to Marcy.
After mom and I get our passports, we leave. Time to get off this ship!
Some of the crew wish us well as we leave.
We walk into security.
Get our bags.
And head back to the Vancouver Marriott Airport Hotel in Richmond, British Columbia via the Vancouver Metro system.
My sis has a high school friend in the area, so we meet up with Mario.
And we look for authentic Chinese restaurants to go to for lunch.
We try the Shanghai River Restaurant near our hotel. It is also packed and they have an hour wait. Apparently everyone in Chinatown is eating out for mothers day. We walk around to a near by restaurant.
We walk further away from the hotel, and finally find an opening with a shorter wait: Parklane Chinese Restaurant.
We wait and wait, and talk to the non-Chinese people. It is definitely an authentic Chinese restaurant.
Finally! We get to sit down.
There is no question it is authentic. Just look at the menu!
Annica understands Chinese very well. Actually there are small subtitles in English.
