I was walking down Nelson street in Vancouver and almost created a human pile-up cause I stopped so suddenly. I thought my eyes were deceiving me, but no, here’s your proof (taken on my new crackberry storm – I’m weak, so sue me – it was handy while I was out of town):
Now, I’m not sure if I’d use this toilet, although it was tempting just to see the inside of it (I know, a toilet is a toilet, but outside in an urban downtown area?). It was quite the sight. I don’t think it was there before, but then again, I never walked downtown as much as I did this trip. In any case, it gave me a good chuckle.
Then I went down Granville street and couldn’t resist taking a pic of it as well, because I know the next time I’m in town it won’t be the same. I wanted to capture it’s essence before they try to clean this area for the 2010 Olympics.
Its a grungy part of the downtown core, but I love its character. Anyways, these random pics of Vancouver shows you a bit of its character. And below shows you how proud the city is of hosting the 2010 Olympics, they have a countdown clock at the VAG! Note that at the time I was there the Olympics were: 351 days, 3 hours, 15 minutes and 28 seconds away.
