Thank you Bob. In fact, the pink hop-on, hop-off double decker we used for sightseeing had a live(ly) commentator. He said that the Downtown area north of False Creek (see photo #3 in Day 1) was also very popular among celebrities, and that Oprah Wihfrey had bought three apartments in that area.
Which reminds me of a piece of news I read last week. The wife of France's ex-President, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, remarked that a woman's place is at home. A British newspaper rephrased that as "a woman's place is at one of her homes."
