Coming out one of the downtown local skytrains (which is Vancouver's subway system) the other day, I came across a very cool looking art display. 2010 paper lanterns decorated by children from Canada and Taiwan hang from a forest of tall wooden bamboo and steel trees. As part of the 2010 Cultural Olympiad for the coming Winter Olympics, the display also celebrates the upcoming Lunar New Year (the eve of which is on February 13th). I will definitely have to come back here at night to take some more pictures when they are all lit up... I passed by during a morning, so waiting... er, for about 12 hours to pass for it to get dark wasn't an option. Will promise to share pics of the next visit!
