That's cool. Is that the rainbow theme? The Vancouver Convention Center is lit up in Rainbow colors for a few weeks.

I thank you for the warm sentiment!  Yes, it has been awhile; but many of these photos I've shared since the pandemic are not very recent.  

Will try to post something fresher.  LOL

As far as I know the colors are supposed to represent the Olympic colors.  But rainbows are just as nice, aren't they?

Thanks Andre!  This "tree" stands at 634 meters.  I believe it is still the second highest completed structure in the world as of this day, as well as the tallest tower in the world.

No, no, no! I am utterly Swedish, but possibly some percentage Bohemian, as an ancestor got mixed into the 30-year war somehow, switching from glass blowing trade to the military, and when the Swedes returned to Sweden he was part of the gang.

So for hundreds of years, we've had glassblowers and military people in my family.

Generals, colonels, and master glassblowers.

But 99% or so, Swedish.

Sorry about the mistake Tord!  I don't really know why, but I always thought you were Norwegian.     And I appreciate the brief explanation of your genealogy, too.  Master glassblowers and distinguished military men--very cool!

It may pale in comparison today, but not when it was erected those many decades ago.

Alley

There's no doubt that it towers over 2-story houses.  LOL  This view is from an adjacent neighborhood.

I thought I show you the view from "the sky" as well since we have also seen it from the street level.
