Well here I am back in Vancouver, though I guess back isn't technically relevant since I previously lived in North Vancouver, not Vancouver proper. Edmonton was good, but Vancouver is better. We're living in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. There is a really vibrant community around here with so many interesting shops, cafes, and restaurants within a few minutes walking distance. Having lived in Edmonton, the most car dependant city in Canada, our neighbourhood is a real revolution, so much so that we're getting rid of our car. Transit makes it super easy to get around when we're not on our bikes, and yes, the traffic in the city is pretty terrible if you're stuck having to drive around. That being said for the times that we do need a car I've joined the Vancouver Co-operative Auto Network.
