West side story

Lots have happened recently! For one, my parents sold their house in the suburban Toronto, packed up their stuff, and moved to the suburbs of Vancouver, bought a condo in Coquitlam and moved in within a three-week time span. It was extraordinary. Now I have a reason to visit Vancouver in the snowy, hailing months of Toronto (which apparently includes April), but the suddenness of it all really struck home. All of a sudden I am without a place to go for Easter.

But because Jens Lekman seems to be the theme of my life when things matter, and he wants me to "come to Vancouver" and "zig-zag the world", I guess I'll just have to go to Vancouver now.

Time to befriend a commercial pilot.

Ah! My family is missing for easter too. It is a bit strange.

Wow! That's quite a move!

Awww, you can come to our place for Easter! :D I'm sure you'll find something to do. And I want to go to Vancouver, so take me with you!

It's a good place to be.

I need a feed for your blog so I can get to you on time. You could have come to my place for Easter! We had an egg hunt and sugar-crazed children running around and everything.

Next time!

Vancouver's pretty. Weird, but pretty. Snow capped mountains, beaches and palm trees all in the same vista. It's a little surreal.
