    and one of the last things I remember was the site of an elderly white haired frail woman about 85, sitting at the curb on a mountain of what I presumed to be her stuff...and it was raining.

    One of the most pitiful sites I have seen really...I never felt welcome there and was reminded I was from the USA a lot.

    Nice diary Sven, architecture changes people long term, hope this helps :>

      worked planting trees numerous times,various other jobs and five years as a Brakeman for CPR.
      I also have two daughters, one son and two grandsons that were all born, and still live in B.C. (except one daughter born in Winnipeg) .
      All that, and the fact I love B.C.,is the reason I moved back from Texas to a town in Washington close to the border.
