Vancouver - Kitsilano...

some pics i took today (mar 23) in Kitsilano

actually this one was from monday...


kits is full of "character" homes


all probably worth close to $1,000,000 - and most have basement suites to help pay the mortage so parking is hard to find... especially since most don't have driveways










what were thinking? ontario?

The photos are very beautiful, however I am disgusted by the fact that houses in Vancouver are so ridiculously expensive. I really despise people who treat houses like a financial investment rather than a basic human right.
