Here's another interesting Chinatown fact I learned on the Chinatown walking tour I mentioned yesterday. This young man crossing the street in the middle of the block is NOT going to get busted for jaywalking. In Chinatown, by virtue of a special city bylaw, jaywalking is legal. It's a nice little recognition that our Chinatown is a special place with its own culture.
Situated on the far west coast of Canada, on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is the capital city of the Province of British Columbia. Its benign climate (the warmest winters in Canada) and placid lifestyle make it a favorite retirement location as well as a popular tourist destination. About 400,000 people live in Victoria and adjacent communities. Click the photos to see them larger!
