I would rather live by the beach ❤️🌴

As we traveled with @fjordseal through the Norwegian Fjords we learned the history of Norway's environment. Interesting how the government is actually encouraging deforestation around the previous tree line, post the introduction of pine trees, since they grew too quickly upon introduction (introduced to hold back avalanches). This place is certainly special, and we as people should try to protect it. But not just this place. The entire world is full of life, life that simply has been here far before human life. I've come to realize this more and more throughout the years and it's a pity to see how destructive we, as a species, can be. It's actually quite interesting to see how one species can alter any landscape so drastically in so little time. So my question is, why don't we use the power that we have to protect and contribute to the world that we live on? If we as humans are so mighty and intelligent as we claim to be, then why haven't we made significant leaps in the alternative fuel and sustainability research that we so crucially need? Just some thoughts that have been rattling around my head while visiting Norway.

It's a complicated world. People have a hard time finding each other and then when they do...they're scared to take the risk.

The Austrian alps are pretty damn high

"Nora Hendrix, Jimi's grandma, worked here (2/3) : Vie's Chicken and Steak House (1920-1970)." It's not hard to imagine Jimi as a boy visiting his grandparents in Vancouver's Strathcona and hanging out at Vie's with his grandma, accompanied by soul food and soul music.
Vie's was both a culinary and cultural centre for blacks at this location in Hogan's Alley (Main-Jackson, Union-Prior). Hogan's Alley was the heart of the black community in Vancouver for decades through the middle of the 20th-century. The 1970s were infamous throughout North America as highways connecting affluent white suburbs to the city centre were built through and on top of poor and mostly non-white neighbourhoods. Vancouver was no exception. Although the planned freeway project was halted, subsequent construction of the replacement Georgia Viaduct in the 1970s meant the razing and destruction of Hogan's Alley, and effectively, the end of a central black community in Vancouver. Now, with the impending demolition of the Georgia Viaduct, there's a glorious opportunity to bring justice to Hogan's Alley and to open a new chapter for the black community to build and write in the city of Vancouver.
Black History Month is recognized in Canada 🇨🇦 since 1995, and is also officially recognized by the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Québec.
