And the countdown clock is almost done! The tourists now are a different crowd. These will be people with "Olympic Rate" accomodation, and there is a noticable uptrend in wealth, and fewer children.

Now THAT'S a BIG flag!
More news groups from out of town: Alaska!
There is another Aboriginal display, This by the Haida, from the Charlottes.
Small inside, and promoting tourism.
