The Weekend In East Van

Now that the kids are asleep and my wife is doing laundry I have a few spare seconds to see the photos I snapped at the B.C. Latino festival at Trout lake, also the ones from our visit to Commercial Drive. East Van as ghetto as people make it out to be isn’t that bad, hell I even live in it. Oh and my house is worth about $950,000, not bad for a ghetto huh?

I consider East Van the Brooklyn (New York) of Vancouver, it is the melting pot of all ethnic groups that come to Vancouver. Commercial Drive is the center of the Italian/Portuguese/Latino flavor in the city. Shop after shop, store after store of food markets, coffee shops and bakeries. Personally I think Commercial Drive has the most “flavor” in all of Vancouver, it has that “neighbourhood feeling”, Brooklyn style.

It’s funny my Canon SD750 always seems to be in my pocket nowadays. I guess since I don’t have to waste hard earned money on buying film it makes it way easier to snap photos of anything I see. You gotta love digital cameras…

Ok enough for tonight, it’s 11:46 pm. I need to lie down for 8 hours and then bike ride to the crime ridden coffee shop on Kingsway in Burnaby.
