Strong wind and cold weather in Vancouver

Outside of my room is so cold. Today I went the Starbucks store which I haven’t ever been and I drunk tall Chai Tea Latte.
The store is next to the Vancouver Public Library Central. Staff is friendly and store is convenient.
During drinking tea, I had read the book of International Trading in Japanese for preparing exam in Japan at the beginning of March.
After then I bought some of instant food at H-mart, Korean supermarket.

The temperature was not so low, but I felt so cold. The winter season have already started.
