Yuliya: And you are still close to the downtown, right, which is…?
Kimberley: Yeah, I feel, so, depends on what you call downtown exactly… But for example, to where I work I can walk in half an hour, and that's like fairly close to the downtown, and yeah, perfect. And then, the other good thing about this area is if I wanted to be somewhere farther afield, you know, the city has really good public transit, although people complain, but… So if I did want to get downtown or further, and I didn’t want to walk, there are options right near my home, so that's great.
Yuliya: So I'm guessing that's one of your favourite things? Or is there anything else you like?
Kimberley: Yes, there's, there are a surprising number of delicious restaurants, near, on both sides, north and south of me, and actually I would have to say, those are my favourite things, truly. I love to eat and I'm so fortunate to be in a neighbourhood that has, or near, I guess, a neighbourhood that has lots of multicultural restaurants, and I can never get bored of eating food from other countries.
Yuliya: Cool! Is there anything you don't like about your neighbourhood?
Kimberley: Well, so I did mention that my street is very quiet and is very short, although we are bordered to the north and to the east by fairly busy streets, so I don't hear a lot of traffic from my house but just you do have to cross some busier streets to get from where I live to anywhere else and that's just life in the big city, but you know, that does make for a less walk, let’s say. But once, but having said that, once I cross the streets, the busy streets, I’m very close to just back to residential quiet side streets, so I feel like no, not even that much that I dislike about it, really.
Yuliya: Great! Thank you for sharing that!
