Day 2: BC Border

August 23, 2015

We spent most of the day driving from Seattle to the Canada border. Along the way, we traveled through the towns of Mount Vernon, Burlington, and Bellingham. Finally, we reached the border at noon! Here’s a picture of crossing the border:

  
 After checking into our hotel in Vancouver, all four of us relaxed from the exhausting car trip. At about seven in the evening, we found ourselves at the annual Richmond night market! Throwback to my Taiwan trip! The line was unbelievably long, and we waited for about thirty to forty minutes before we finally gained admittance. But it was worth it! First, I, starving girl that I was, found the ramen stand and ordered a delicious bowl of the Japanese noodles. 🍜 Yum. I was really pleased with both the food’s flavor and presentation. And that was just the beginning! We ate gluten BBQ skewers, deep fried, crispy mushrooms, deep fried tofu with tangy hot sauce, and fried Chinese noodles. For dessert, I decided to get a traditional winter-melon tea, like the one I had in Taiwan. Sadly, my expectations were crushed. The drink was way too sweet and it wasn’t cold enough. Good thing there was a backup: a mango shaved ice with ice cream in top! Besides the winter melon incident, it was a great dinner! πŸ˜‰

And for all you avid shoppers, there is a variety of booths offering everything from the most adorable socks to clothes to stationery! It was definitely worth the wait and the money.
Had a great day!

Yours,
That Girl Over There~
