Cafe de Soleil on Commercial Drive.

土曜の朝、朝ごはんで人気なベジタリアンカフェへ☆
凄く広くて開放的な場所だった!

Let us never forget what really matters to East Vanistanis: coffee in sufficiently large quantities for one to swim in, decadent vegetarian brunches, and enormous muffins. Café Deux Soleils is always stellar at providing all of these things. Stay awesome, delicious, and hipster, East Vanistanis. xo

No danger of potassium deficits for East Vanistanis, nope!

East Vanistanis always be lookin’ out for your well-being, especially when it comes to totally-preventable umbrella-and-bicycle-related incidents.

East Vanistanis are passionate about chocolate biscotti, coffee, and gratuitously long coffee spoons.

So that’s where duck flavored treats come from

While slightly less common than felines, doggies do in fact reside in East Vanistan, and they are dearly loved and treated to calming nature walks (right after a round of doggie yoga, no doubt).

Love Trash by Kevin Krebs on Flickr.

Is it a metaphor for life? Well, yes and no. It’s symbolic of both the rejection and spreading of love and humanity that one can see in the universe, showing both its meaninglessness and infinite beauty. Or else some talented East Vanistani visited one of East Vanistan’s Puff Shops and was inspired to create a second Green Fairy. Either way, this is a nifty, whimsical piece of East Vanistani street art.

East Vanistani trees blooming with East Vanistani beauty on East Vanistani streets. Kudos on the extra-hipster, extra-lovely long exposure shot.

Vancouver mural artist furious after Commercial Drive artwork covered in anti-pipeline graffiti again

East Vanistani debate: do we support those practicing civil disobedience in the name of environmentalism, or those advocating for the integrity of artists and their work? It is rather sad that two voices, expressed through different media, are speaking out against the pipeline but are in conflict with one another rather than working cooperatively for the same goals. Alas, even idyllic East Vanistan has its problems.

I wouldn’t have taking this picture if she wasn’t wearing those leggings. If you are trying to rock this look, you must really commit. Dreads don’t just wash out.

This bold, beautiful fashionista is clearly an East Vanistani [if the dreads and awesome leggings didn’t give it away, the signature Drive flags and Wonderbucks store front in the background did…]!
