Because of construction in East Vancouver, my bus home from work in Burnaby has been 40 mins late every day, which led me to take an alternative route, which consists of a skytrain and two bus transfers. The second bus on my new route was also late, and the bus stop that I was forced to kill time at was located in front of a new store I'd never seen before. It's a hat store called Chapel and it's on Broadway and Granville (for my Vancouver readers!) — the selection is wide and the guy who works there is a helpful, charming aussie. I've always hated wearing sunglasses, so finding a good hat is a much preferred alternative for avoiding the sun squint. I think the two of us will be very happy together this summer.
