Menno Den Haan, our new host, is checking out the Vancouver Christmas Market. This year, it is the fourth time that this centuries old European Christmas Market tradition is celebrated here in Vancouver. The Vancouver Christmas Market attracts every year tourists and residents of all ages. While walking through the outdoor Christmas village, which is beautifully decorated with myriads of Christmas lights, you will have the chance to find very special handmade gifts offered in the innumerable illuminated wooden huts, and to enjoy a great entertainment program, seasonal music, and mouth-watering traditional food items, such as spicy gingerbread, and first of all hot delicious mulled wine in the cold outside!
We visited the aviation festival “The Abbotsford International Airshow” in Abbotsford, BC. Gene Faber, member of the Abbotsford Flying Club, organized the Dutch for the show. We interviewed despite of the enormous noise of jets in the background!
