Imagine my surprise when, this morning, while on my way to North Vancouver for a job interview, I saw this docked at Canada Place:
I thought I’d heard about this ship on Twitter this morning; it was all the buzz, especially from people who work on the waterfront.
After a bit of research (not really hard, really), I discovered that this is the Slava-class missile cruiser Varyag, open for visits today (sadly, today is over) and tomorrow (yay!) from 9AM to 12PM.
I can’t visit it myself, sadly (wish I had known before), but if you can take an early lunch tomorrow, it’s probably going to be your only chance to visit an actual Russian military ship in a long, long time!
