Things I'm getting used to over in Canada

1. Seaplanes buzzing past at eye level on final approach for landing.
2. Driving on the other (Right? Left? Wrong?) side of the road.
3. New driving rules.
4. Personal space.
5. Lower cost of living (Like having roughly a third off everything at UK prices - with certain exceptions).
6. Being a lot less stressed all the time.
7. The intense blue of wide open skies.
8. Trees.
9. Mountains.
10.More trees.
11.Sedate driving.
12.Hey look! More trees.
13.Friendly people.
14.Friendly trees (Sure are a lot of them)
15.Having to keep my dog on his lead.
17.Dog stopping every five paces to widdle on yet another tree
18.Mountain views
19.Dog fainting with dehydration.
20.Those trees are talking about me you know.

More later when I've gone fishing to get away from those gossippy trees.

Sounds much more relaxing than walking the streets...

Other things you might miss after awhile may include chavs, foot & mouth disease, petrol at the equivalent of nearly $8 a gallon, people swearing loudly in public, people drinking 10 pints on a Friday night and then regurgitating them along with a chicken madras at the bus stop (or if you're very lucky, on the bus). Marmite and Dr Who you can get here. I do miss the BBC shipping forecast and the ritual recitation of the Saturday afternoon football results, though...

Mad Dog,

Did I say I missed all those things? Only because I keep turning corners half expecting to see them. I can handle the disappointment though.

Heh, well I meant "miss" in a negative sense. You'll only notice you missed thes things when you go back.

Oh and I meant to say try the Poutine, too...

Location: British Columbia, Canada

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
