Vancouver is a strange city. It's a great city, but a strange one nevertheless. It’s blessed with possibly the nicest landscape in the world, sandwiched between mountains and the oceans, but it has the reputation of a no-fun city and it's supposedly difficult to meet people there. This reputation is likely given by bitter Torontonians jealous of Vancouver’s beauty, but at any rate Vancouver does occasionally get tagged as bland. The recent Olympics did a spot to rectify that, showcasing party after party and hosting possibly the most fun, if not the most magical Winter Olympic Games ever.
