Thanksgiving Holiday in Vancouver

Instead of celebrating with friends and eating Turkey on the Thanksgiving Day in the U.S., we paid a visit to Vancouver, Canada (a two-hour flight from San Francisco), feeling Christmas in the air in this charming city.

A few snippets of our journey, including visits to two delightful restaurants with a good friend and old colleague:
