So here comes the culture shock part. I felt like I was suddenly in a Tin-Tin comic book, or at least scene from a movie. Old trucks loaded up blowing black smoke into the air, rough looking dudes hanging off the side, an old crane working away - that I can't say I felt safe walking near. I guess it isn't that much different to the Indonesia I see everyday, but just the combination of it all in a new setting made it a memorable experience.
Thankfully Brian brought his camera to document a bit of it!
That's our stuff being loaded on the left.
Somehow I don't think things at the Vancouver Port Authourity work quite like this.
