Another beautiful evening in English Bay

What a beautiful spring evening in Vancouver today. English Bay is looking its finest. People are flocking to the seawall. Amy and I will probably move out of the neighbourhood soon, to get something bigger and more affordable. The west end, and English Bay in particular is my favorite part of Vancouver, but I'm sure we'll find something nice south of False Creek. We will definitely be renting again, as the housing market has not crashed here yet. I've heard that the disparity between house prices and incomes is nowhere so large as here. A hard hitting housing crash is exactly what is needed here. Last weekend I visited a condo tower near UBC called the Wesbrook that was selling two bedroom apartments for 1.4M dollar. Maybe a Hong Kong businessman can afford this.

Ja die plekjes op je foto ken ik maar al te goed. Ik heb het alleen nooit zo mooi groen gezien als op jouw foto's.
Ik zou maar een job zoeken bij die Wesbrook, ze kunnen vast wel wat IT services gebruiken en laten je dan in een van hun apartments wonen. Het kost anders wel een paar centen, maar ja wonen op de boulevard van Zandvoort of Scheveningen heeft ook z'n prijs.....
