Vancouver's Eclectic Eastside | Part I

Hi all, here are some pics I took yesterday while wandering through several of the different eastern neighourboods near downtown. I started by taking the SkyTrain to Commercial Drive, then gradually made my way west into Strathcona, Chinatown, the Downtown Eastside, Gastown, and the ended up in the eastern part of the CBD.

This is Part 1 of 2

Part 2:

A rough map of my approximate route:

Riding the SkyTrain to Commercial Drive from downtown

View from Broadway/Commercial Station looking towards downtown

Residential side street

Quick jaunt down a residential side street

Back on Commercial

Looking towards downtown

And now I turn down Venables into a more light industrial part of town

Residential side street looking down to the port

A pleasant day for a walk

I would've sworn "logotized" isn't a real word

I love this place. They practically have every flavour imaginable, including some I have zero desire to try. It is in a strange location but still manages to draw a crowd.

And suddenly the industrial gives way to a pleasant residential neighbourhood as I reach Strathcona

That is the end of Part I. See Part II here:
