Very Vancouver

4 November 2017 – Trucking on down West Broadway I am, and there it is. A Very Vancouver moment.

A bike. With prayer flags.

I should add… That was two days ago.

Yesterday it snowed. But the snow is all up there, atop the Coast Mountains, not down here on city streets (though visible from here).

Down here the palm trees still wave their fronds, as they do year-round.

Meanwhile skiers are ecstatic, digging out their gear, and non-skiers are scrabbling around, trying to find their gloves & scarves.

And umbrellas.

    "Traveller, there is no path. Paths are made by walking" -- Antonio Machado (1875-1939)

    "The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes" -- Marcel Proust (1871-1922)

    "A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities" -- Rebecca Solnit, "Wanderlust: A History of Walking"
