Vancouver update

Last saturday I was again in Downtown Vancouver for sightseeing. My first stop was the Police museum. Oddly enough, this museum (together with the main police office) is located in East Downtown, an area which is populated mostly with homeless, drug addicts et cetera. This museum is quite interesting because it has several rooms showing the history of the Vancouver police and also rooms where you can see different weapons, different (illegal) drugs and even an "autopsy" room which shows brains and skulls with bullet-holes. (see the pictures below) I also went to Stanley Park. It's one of the biggest city parks in North America. There are the famous totem poles, one of the most often photographed sight in Vancouver. Yesterday we went to Whistler, a famous ski resort north of Vancouver. Whistler will play an important role during the 2010 Olympics.
