Hi everyone! Do you remember your first week here in Vancouver? Probably the weather was still good. But last Sunday (September 22nd) was the beginning of fall, hence summer is gone and as one might expect the rainy season starts right now! Consequently be prepared to carry an umbrella with you all the time!
But many students like you and me probably didn’t have one in their suitcase when they arrived at Vancouver. So you definitely have to buy one if you don’t want to get wet! But it could become very expensive to buy an umbrella here in Vancouver – up to 25 $!
When the Seabus arrives at Waterfront on a rainy day and people don’t carry an umbrella with
them, they want to buy one as quick as possible. For that, they probably will buy one in a
souvenir shop close to the Seabus station. But the umbrellas there are kind of expensive! WHY?
Well, that’s business!
But there is no need for it! You only have to cross the streets or to walk down Water Street
towards Gastown to get a cheap umbrella for 6-8$ (+tax)! That’s way better than 25$, isn’t it?
So with the money saved in this manner you could do something special, for example you could
join our next weekly pub night?! What do you think about that?
