My wife and I took a drive up to BC last week. I didn't go barefoot in a lot of areas but wore my lyric sandals (the type that only covers the foot pad) and also wore my VFF classics.

Nobody seem to notice the VFF's, a couple of shop keepers noticed my lyrics but made no comment. Later in the day the lyrics tend to stretch and  slip further back putting tension on the thong part. We are in Gastown and took my sandals off and walked around again no one noticed. I did see one young lady on the Seabus to North Vancouver going barefoot.

We were sitting down on a bench in front of the railway station having a Japadog (a Japanese hot dog) and this lady came up to me with two pieces of newspaper and telling me to put these under my feet because the Vancouver area has a high incidence of Cellulitis and Fifths and other assorted bad bugs. I told her thank you but this wasn't necessary. Her reply was "It your health".

Imagine a hotdog done Japanese style with yakisoba, noodles on a dog or a shrimp hotdog all done with japanese condiments. I had the shrimp dog and it was really tasty.

I like Vancouver and would live there but I like my guns and want to keep them.

It certainly was. What was fun was the little Japanese girl who serve us, her english was very limited and everything she said ended it  "Yes, thank you very much".
