Welcome to Vancouver


Originally uploaded by Jeffery Simpson.

The view coming into Vancouver from a cruise ship is absolutely amazing. I know I take the city for granted, but it’s a beautiful town and I can see why people allow themselves to be so caught up by the unique mixture of nature and modern life that Vancouver has to offer. We can complain that it’s not as friendly as it used to be, that it’s not the city it used to be but it’s still damn pretty.

And that’s not to make light of the issues of social inequality, of the large homeless problems that we have that remain misdealt with. However after spending a week on the other side of the border it’s good to be home. Vancouver’s the city for me, even if the Canucks will never replace the Oilers in my heart or make it past the second round.

Having declared my love for the town I’ll be away for month, I’m heading to Europe to study how dragons are raised in European zoos. No wait, sorry I always get Europe and Harry Potter novels mixed-up. I’m going to Europe to drink beer and take pictures. I’ll be back, and while I’m gone the other fine women and men of Metroblogging Vancouver are going to keep this site ticking along like a fine watch.

Enjoy the city while I’m gone. It’s a keeper.
