This is the start page. The blog’s front page is. I showed up back in 1996, September. Vancouver was where there was 2 Starbucks ….right across the street from each other . And that was crazy !! There was the WOODWARDS building. They just had the Molson Indy, and some fireworks festival. What was I to know? A little lost , not connecting with some friends I knew from Winnipeg. I found out , the whole tourist trap thing is real. Loose everything in I.D and records. Out of contact, and alone my situation ending with me out side, and starting from square one. The year of 96 summer / fall through to October 97 . How I adapted to the situation and found my way around. Learning about local resources , from the bottom up.
