Salsa in Vancouver

Thanks to and the website of Bravura Dance Company I realised quickly that Vancouver is one of those cities where it is possible to go salsa dancing virtually every day(night). On Saturday night I met up with Laureano who writes for, to go dancing at the
Howard Johnson Hotel, and on the Sunday afternoon I brought my sis along to the big social event Sunday Afternoon Salsa at Robson Square. It is an outdoor event, with a big and very good polished cement dance floor and good music from 3pm onwards. The last two days in Vancouver I spent my evenings trying out the local salsa classes: a ladies styling and spinning session with Nina and dropped in a partnerwork class with Roger Chen.

Second stop Vancouver

After a brief pit stop in Heathrow and a long flight over the Atlantic, we ended up in Vancouver where a mobile home was waiting for us. Vancouver International Aiport (YVR for short...) has the most amazing exhibit of aquariums, plants and native art. It feels like walking through a big theme park rather than an airport. We spent one night in Vancouver before heading straight for Vancouver Island and Josh.
