Vancouver Convention Center Green Roof by artofcp on 29 August 2009 5:11am
 
Here is a lovely video about Vancouver's green roof on the Convention Center. Your home town, Lounge Trekker, no?

The New York Times has Lens Blog feature and once in a while they have "videos worth watching." Lucky for those who get featured!

I have lived about five years in Vancouver and it is a great city. I live close to the city on Vancouver Island, thanks for thinking of me, Cathleen!

Oh, I thought you were a native Vancouverer, Pete. Where were you born and raised most of your life?

The video was interesting. Thanks.

Thanks for the link, artofcp!
I used to travel to Vancouver a lot on business and always stayed at the Pan Pacific Hotel (owned by Sony which owned the company I worked for) which is a part of Canada Place which houses the Convention Center. The new wing which supports this green roof was just started to be constructed the last time I was there. Vancouver is an amazing city. If I'd have to live in a city, Vancouver would be my first choice. (London would be my second.)

And the Pan Pacific is an amazing hotel. I'll never again have that luxury when traveling.
