According to the most recent census (2001), only 1.36 percent of Vancouver's population of 2, 097, 960 come from Mexico, Central and South America. This amounts to only 28, 575 people.
But despite the numbers, there are a lot of Latin influence in the city - from the sun every summer Carnival Film Festival in Latin America, not to mention some good Mexican restaurants, Brazilian and Central. And, for lovers of Latin rhythms, including a handful of local live Latin music in Vancouver.
The problem is that they are easy to find, here are some of my favorite places:
Latin Quarter: This small restaurant on Commercial Drive (1305 Commercial Drive) has been an icon for decades. Give a Spanish Mediterranean menu, but most of the regulars come for live music and dancing. A trio (sometimes quartet) of talented guitarists and drummers play salsa hits and other selections of America. It's all very casual: they have a stage, you can see people dancing between the tables and a lot of interaction with musicians.
Kino Cafe: A little gem on Cambie Street, Kino (3456 Cambie St.) hosted live flamenco performances since the mid 1990s. It doubles as a restaurant, but the decor is minimal and the real goal is the big stage in the center of the room. Almost every night of the week, you can listen to live flamenco guitar and singing, accompanied by very good flamenco dancing.

Shows where they say "fuck" and refer to sex in graphic ways, but not porn - it's British cable TV (they live in the UK).
Her daughter is 13.
Would you let your kid watch that kind of stuff at that age?
For example, there's a UK comedy show where the presenter was talking about "the scariest fairy tales". They said something like "Yes, Hanzel and Gretel is the scariest fairy tale. Hanzel represents the male sperm, the woodchopper the male essence, therefore the penis; the forest is pubic hair; the warts on the witches nose are STDs, and Gretel has sex with animals."
