Vancouver, my hometown, is the largest city in the Canadian province of British Columbia (B.C.).  The city of Vancouver is a major port city on the Pacific
ocean and the southern part of the city actually touches the international border with the United States of America.  The city is formed on a plain, which is
partly formed by the delta of the enormous Fraser river.  The nearest large city is the American metropolis of Seattle Washington.  The above photos give a
sense of some aspects of life in Vancouvre, from how many of the streets have many trees growing on them, the impressive Vancouver Aquarium and one of
the universities in the city, U.B.C..
