A week in photos
In the end, I stayed at Aman & Stephanie’s for five nights, breaking my three-night rule for maybe the eighth time this trip. It made for good hanging out, though, and I had not seen them since we met up briefly in New York City, because they happened to be visiting when I was there and one night, when I suddenly had nowhere to go, they had me over to their Hotel Chelsea room and we had a sleepover. Since then, they have gone and eloped in Vegas, so I got to hear that whole story of how it came to be and see the pictures and get a good look at the rings on their fingers.
They actually live just outside Vancouver in New Westminster but we made it into the city a few times and I got to meet several of their other friends and walk around Stanley Park, which was much sunnier this time than when I visited two years ago in rainy October, and then, on my last morning there, another friend, Tamara, had to be in town from Abbotsford for a wedding, so she and I met at a park close to Aman & Stephanie’s and she brought me coffee and we strolled around for about an hour, getting to know each other better, since we had only briefly met in March on a friend’s boat on Isla Mujeres, when I was there for one of my many Mexican paperwork trips.
Here are a few things I saw.
