Siggraph 2014 Diaries - Vancouver : Friday 15th August

As this would be our last full day and night in Canada, and the conference was now over, we decided to spend the time doing something a bit special….

Figure 01. Train tunnel (the trains have windows to see where you're going and where you've been)

Figure 02. Bus ride after the train

Figure 03. We couldn't believe it! Travel from Chatham in England, and the bus stop we needed to get off at was Chatham Street in Canada!

Figure 04. Ernesta & Nat on the boat

About 5 minutes into the trip, the boat kept trying to rev but wouldn't get any faster, and then turned back to shore.

As it was our last night, we decided to stay up for as long as possible and explore some more.
Kym was off doing some retail therapy somewhere else.
