    Vancouver has several great Izakaya restaurants. Soon DC will have its first in our neighborhood.

    I was also envious of Vancouver’s Skytrain. It’s called a Skytrain but it is underground downtown. It features automated driverless technology which keep operational costs very low. With this technology removing union salaries for driver’s from the equation they are able to run trains every 5 minutes whether it be 7:45AM on Sunday or 11:45PM on a Tuesday night. I envy those short headways greatly. But I believe you can only implement such a game changer with new construction – there is no way 1960′s construction like Metro could ever support this nor would the entrenched unions allow it.
