How did we end up here?

Flexibility is key. I think we mentioned that in a previous post. It’s January and we’re in Canada. This was not really what we had in mind! We wanted to be living/working/traveling in Asia but it turns out we have the food but not the weather. Grant is working on a project locally at Boundary Bay for 8 weeks.

Richmond is a part of Metro Vancouver. I lived my first 9 years in Richmond. Yesterday Grant and I drove down our old street and our house is now gone. Even the ditches that we skated on and that we had so much fun fishing for tadpoles is gone.

Richmond has changed a lot since I first lived here. It has Canada’s highest population of immigrants (about 60%). 50% of it’s residents are Chinese. This of course brings us to the restaurants here. About 560 of them. The best Chinese food out of Hong Kong is here.

I’ve been following a blog for some time now called 365 Days of ┬áDining Richmond. Lindsay’s blog is great and I enjoy learning about all the different Asian foods. How ironic that we are now here and can experience some of these fantastic restaurants first hand.
