After getting Yuko’s stuff moved (which, let me tell you, was no small feat) we happened upon some sort of Hippie Festival on 4th in Kitsilano. It was a pretty typical street fair type set-up but great for people watching.
I want to play with sidewalk chalk again! A couple of years ago my friend Kelsey and I bought sidewalk chalk very late at night and walked around campus writing our favorite literary quotes like “You always look so cool” by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
There are a couple things of note in this picture: 1) notice how many frozen yogurt cups that girl is carrying! 2) the man sitting on the bench was practically dripping in jewelry – I’m sure he had at least one ring on every finger and several bracelets on each wrist.
Of course there was also an old flower covered van with a bed inside because, you know, its a hippie fest. I guess for some reason I didn’t feel like taking a picture of it.
Oh, she knows alright.
