Well, here I am in Gastown, in a park filled with stoners and homeless men, my belly stuffed with delicious, cheap sushi.

What a funny (but good) city. The skytrain is immaculately clean and fast, and runs on the bloody honour system! and I just used a free public toilet, which is also immaculately clean and supervised, so there’s no hanky panky. How does Vancouver afford all this? Maybe it can’t. Maybe the city councillors have been rendered stupid from all the pot smoking.

Speaking of which, the sweet scent of the wacky weed is all over this park. The local cornershop even sells “cannabis scented” incense.

Ahhh… that’s how they can afford all of this….
