We stayed in what we were told was the absolute worst part of Vancouver and it was nothing, just a bunch of junkies wandering around like zombies.
I did not at all feel uneasy about stumbling back to the hostel at 3am there.
Haha. I couldn't walk half a block without being propositioned by either a crack dealer or a prostitute, but they were all very polite.
"You wanna by some shit?"
"Well, aigh-aight then."
"Hey sweetie, you want a date?"
I guess "bad neighborhoods" is kind of overstating it, but I know of tons of bands that have gotten their shit ripped off in Vancouver. I guess that happens lots of places, though.
