Wow nice Air Canada flight landed in brilliant sun shine, great light , much like Victoria or Vancouver , no contrast , brilliant clean air. Only about ten degrees but felt much warmer. Spring every where green grass, flowers , palm trees. The cab was $38 from the airport staying right downtown at the Golden Gate Hotel. very cool place! Found on Trip Advisor built in 1912 always a hotel! Met the owner extremely nice as are the whole staff. Resident Manx cat Pip is great! Had some amazing sushi just down the street, very entertaining they said they get the fresh fish from Japan about ten hours plane ride. We then walked through a huge China town for many blocks.
