walking around this past weekend, the streets were a bit more crowded than usual. part of it might be that the weather is warming up a bit and people are out and about, but based on the number of slrs with enormous lenses being toted around, i'm guessing a lot of the traffic is also from "foreigners" (i use quotes because i could probably get lumped into that category myself). loads of people from the uk, europe, and asia (and maybe a couple americans) are here and i'm excited to have the opportunity to meet people out from all over the world.
also, i'm a sucker for enormous inflatable paraphernalia, so i'm really into all the decoration that has been going up around the city. this is just the beginning - you're bound to see more photos like these soon enough:
giant inflatable rugby ball on the viaduct. just in case no one knows what's happening this week..
did i mention i'm dating?
