Once Tep got a 2 weeks-summer-project grant to work with Boeing Company in Seattle(Through Texas A&M Univ.Tep was an engineering professor). We were so happy there, my daughter also flew from Houston to join us. We rented a Toyota to drive cross the US/Canada border to Vancouver, Canada. We went to the Grouse Mountain, took the skyride up to the Peak of Vancouver, so beautiful up there and we had the best lunch at a restaurant on top of the mountain.

We walked around for a long time and when we came down we were so sad that we left the Toyota's headlights on and the car battery ran out. No tourists there had jumper-cable to jumpstart our car. Then a big tourist bus came, after all passengers were out. The bus driver offered to jumpstart our car! I/my daughter hugged the man ...our prayers came true!!
After that, we drove to see the Capilano Suspension Bridge, that day was quite windy, the bridge kind of swaying but we were so brave to walk on the bridge back and forth 3 times...so much scary-fun(I prayed all the time)!!!
Capilano Suspension Bridge reminds me of the great movie INDIANA JONES starring ...my favorite Harrison Ford .

And no..no..we didn't leave the car headlights on again!
I love Vancouver!
