So while I have been hanging out with Son no 1, while he goes through blood tests ( last week there were daily blood tests) and just to be with him, we have been traveling a bit to see Victoria ( where he will be getting married in August) and just around where he lives now, Nanaimo.

Now I am Indian from Singapore and I grew up and lived in a city, a city where diversity rules. We have all sorts of food and cultures mingling to create this fusion of language and life.
so this little island off Vancouver looks very white to me. White people, culture and living. Slower pace of life and everything seems, on the surface, to be nice... passive aggressive almost.
So while I love the open spaces and the weather, I almost find everything else to be a bit, dare I say it....bland...

I am sure in a few years I will change again and probably hanker for the slower pace and actually look forward to a more relaxed way of life....retirement is still a way away for me I guess..
