For us people from the tropics, snow is justmagical.
I saw snow for the first time when I was akid, I used to live in Germany when my dad played for the Bundesliga, but after thatI didn't see snow for years, for over 20 years.
The next time I saw snow was a couple yearsago, when I traveled to the Swiss Alps on a business trip.
I had to keep my cool about it.
and I completelyfailed.
This year we decided to travel to Vancouverso that my daughter could see snow for the first time.
Welcome to Canada! So we arrived into Vancouver about an hourago.
We haven't rented a car yet.
And it is my duty as a parent to go out andhunt for food.
Go ahead, ask me I have any Canadian dollars.
We're in downtown Vancouver now.
That thing back there is a mall.
We are going to the mall, today.
Robin Sparkles: Let's go to the mall everybody.
I'm sorry I had to make that joke.
Pao is feeling sick today so Eva and I arevisiting the aquarium.
Supposedly this is one of the best ramen inVancouver.
Let's try it out.
That was pretty good.
Actually, great! Today we are visiting the Greenville Island.
Grenville? Granville? Granville Island public market, which is thelargest public market in Vancouver.
We always like to visit markets when we travel, because it gives you this chance to see what (usually) the locals buy and shop and enjoy.
It also lets you sample tastes of differentlocal foods, and bakery and stuff like that.
Barely made last call of Café Medina, whichis a famous brunch spot in downtown Vancouver.
We had belgian waffles with real canadianmaple syrup.
I don't want to see or hear about Aunt Jemimaever again.
Pao has insisted in us trying Poutine.
Let's see if the hype is real.
Unpopular opinion time.
I don't think Poutine is calorie worth it.
What does that mean? It's like donuts.
I don't think that donuts are calorie worthit.
What I mean by that is, there are so manycalories in donuts and in Poutine, it's disgusting.
It's not worth it compared on how tasty theyare.
Compare that to Pizza for example, Pizza isdelicious and it's totally calorie worth it; like a hamburger.
But not Poutine.
We're driving to Luis' place tonight.
You might remember Luis from a previous video.
Luis and I went to college together.
He's been living here in Vancouver for about7 years now.
He moved from Costa Rica to work on an animationstudio, he worked on the Angry Birds movie! They invite us for dinner tonight, and tomorrowwe are all going together to Whistler and Pemberton.
I love skiing, I've done it like twice, butI love it.
But it's kind of expensive, and I don't thinkthat a kid would enjoy it as much.
A tube park is just $20, two hours of kidfriendly fun, and that's what we are here for.
I also have to talk about this awesome Airbnbwhere we're staying.
It's this little potato farm outside the townof Pemberton, near Whistler which is a larger ski town.
It's not only surrounded by these amazingmountains, and the house has a chimney and it's super spacious, but the best thing, isthat there's a brewery just next door.
You just can't help stopping by.
We got talking with Bruce last night.
Bruce and his family own the brewery that'snext to the house.
Such a great story.
They started the brewery about 6 months ago, they've been potato farmers all along, then they started growing barley.
it's becomea destination in Pemberton where people come from Vancouver just to have beer at the brewery.
They were super nice, their house was great, and it's one of the best Airbnb experiences I've ever had.
I'm sure Luis and Adelina are gonna come back soon.
So by a fantastic coincidence as were comingback from Pemberton, we came across one of the rare snows in Vancouver.
It doesn't snow in the city over the winter, maybe 4 or 5 times per year.
We say goodbye to Canada, which was an amazingexperience.
Thank you for watching.
