Trust me, I hate Edmonton. I almost would rather live in Calgary...but not really. I don't like either city. Vancouver is a bit too stretched and too crowded. It takes forever to get anywhere far, so you really have to stay within your part of town or else it takes forever to get anywhere. At least there is close access to more there though, since it is bigger. so there is more in Vancouver, but it takes a while to drive around. In Edmonton especially, and Calgary a little bit less, you can drive anywhere you really want to go in less then an hour. Probably 45 minutes to go from North to South.

But I do lke it that Vancouver is already warm, but Victoria is even better if you want greenness. I was just there, and it looked a lot nicer at this time of year then Vancouver. It's just a pretty place I guess. My family wants to move!!! :shock:

I'm going to look around for some pictures, but in the mean time I found an entertaining video of some random moments that some kids filmed at my school a few years back. This was one year before I started going there, but nothing has changed.

and these pitches are actually free to use? :)

you live in a very nice natural area... 8)

but when i think a bit more, i'd never change my dorcol for anything...
once Dorcolac - always Dorcolac...
yeah i'm a local-patriot...

btw, here's what Wikipedia says for my neighborhood:
Location

Dorćol begins already some 700 meters north of Terazije, the central square of Belgrade. It roughly can be divided in two sections, Gornji (or Upper) Dorćol, which covers the area from Studentski park to the Cara Dušana street, and Donji (or Lower) Dorćol which occupies the area between the Cara Dušana and Francuska streets and the right bank of the Danube. It borders (and largely overlaps) the neighborhood of Stari Grad (east and south) and the fortress of Kalemegdan (west), which is sometimes considered as part of Dorćol as well. The population of the neighboirhood in the widest sense was 22,707 in 2002.

History

The name of the neighborhood comes from Turkish words dört (four) and yol (road), literally meaning "four roads" or colloquially "intersection (of four roads)", "crossroads". There is a town in Anatolian section of modern Turkey with the same name (Dörtyol). During the Turkish occupation of Belgrade, Dorćol was a well known trading centre, with many markets and traders of different nationalities, among others it was a center of Belgrade's Jewish community, remnant of which is the modern Jevrejska ("Jewish") street in Dorćol. After Belgrade became a capital of independent Serbia, Dorćol kept its multinational character for a long time. Eventually the old low houses and narrow streets were changed into modern buildings. Still, some parts, though vanishing one by one, resemble the old look.

i've just watched it, and you can see that kid in blue shirt, in the tram he was asked how it is to live in Belgrade, and he says "good", and in Serbia "awesome"... and it was filmed mostly on Dorcol... :cry:
i never want to leave my hometown...


and this one, they even mention Dorcol in the song (between 00:15 and 00:20)...
