This flyer was put up in the elevator of my apartment. The managers change it periodically. They are very good people -- kind, friendly, and diligent. My apartment is always kept clean and well maintained except for inside my room. Furthermore I can enjoy the spectacular view from my room. I like it so much that I have never changed it since I first came to Vancouver three years ago. However, today I received a letter from the managers which was a little bit of a shock for me. It said that the room rent is to be raised from next April by C$35 per month. As the exchange rate between Japanese yen and Canadian dollars is deteriorating these days, it is a little bit hard for me to spend it without any income. I have to work harder in my business to afford the room rent and the happy life I'm enjoying now.
