I am clumsy; I am not ashamed to recognize it! But even I am, it’s really difficult not to fall down here in Vancouver!
Why? Easy answer! Everything is full of leaves! You can’t even see the sidewalk! It makes sense I know. This city is plenty of trees and in this time of the year all their leaves falls down! But still!
In Spain there are trees as well, but even if we have a terrific crisis right now, there are always sweepers working to clean the pavements! After two fallen in the same day (exactly in ten minutes) and with bruises around my whole body I am thinking, seriously thinking in propose something to the Canadian government. Please, please, please this city needs more sweepers! I mean Vancouver is great, I am in love with this city, but please I will love to keep my whole body in one piece!
In Madrid I was always complaining about the noises, because it seems they really need to clean the city in the early morning and with a super-noise- last-technology machine! But here is on the contrary, there are almost not sweepers!
I don’t use to complain a lot, but Madrid and Vancouver, both of them really need to find a middle point between no sweepers at all and cleaning the streets when the people are sleeping …
But there are always positive things, so battles with leaves are so much fun! And I can sleep quietly in the early morning while I stay here!
And who knows? Maybe I get a record of fallen and even appear in the Records Book!! 🙂
Have a nice day, watch out and take care, you are in Vancouver!!
