So this was Christmas
It is 11:30 pm. As usual, we have another night of heavy, heavy rain. I had to move from my old comfortable spot to a lesser luxurious location. A security guard made me move down a few feet. According to him, I was sleeping on private property. As long as I stay dry, I am more than happy to sleep anywhere in Downtown Vancouver.
Throughout Christmas, downtown was very quiet. I guess most people were spending time with their family. I feel bad for missing Christmas dinner with my family, but I believe that my story will reach a few people. It will be worth it in the end.
Most shops weren’t even open. Tomorrow is Boxing Day, so I expect the exact opposite scenario. On Boxing Day, consumer hungry men and women wait in line to purchase the newest gadgets which will occupy their minds for a while; others purchase the newest styles in fashion, all at a discounted price. Either way, there will be a lot of buying.
A few minutes ago, one of my friends came to give me a short visit on Christmas Day. He brought his cat with him, which you can see in the photo. We sat around and chatted for a while. This was the first time I was able to tell one of my friends a few of the stories which I have shared with you earlier.
