Vrooming through Vancouver

Sb_train1At right, the Canadian -- which I'm going to hop onto in about thirty minutes unless I type too much here and miss the boarding call.  The folks and my aunt and I are taking a week to get from Vancouver (which we blazed through in 6 hours today, after coming over on the morning ferry from Vancouver Island) to Toronto.

To mention: Canadians really hate George Bush.  Graffiti today: "USA out of Canada".  Fortunately, they don't blame all of us.

Something I learned lately: don't pick blackberries close to the ground.  They get all the dust and some of the dog piss.

One of my favorite pieces of anarchist verbiage was on a button I saw that said "US out of North America!" This isn't the exact button, but it's close enough.

Ah, how I love Canadia. Tim Horton, hatred of GWB and socialized health care, all wrapped up in a garage sale nirvana package? Lord Oh Man, I'm up for it.

Tim Horton -- is that a 24-hour coffee shop? Our host's son manages the Mill Bay site.

You lucky, lucky bastard! I've always wanted to take that train. And live in Canada. Mysteriously, even though I'm a Canadian citizen, I don't.

Why would I want to leave America just to visit America, Jr.?
