stranger in a strange land

i went to the states for the first time in... ten years? eight years? this past month. wow, what an experience.
my friend graeme and i had a few observations once we crossed the border (wow, by the way! those guys...). first off... nice roads! when people critique winnipeg roads, i'll now know better than to stick up for them. second, road kill ALL over the place. does no one clean it up? maybe canada is just better at that. i don't know. third, the speed limit is like, 35km. felt like we were crawling all the way to bemidji.

during our stay, we went to an american football game, purchased some drinks measured in 'oz', and took note to all the new last names. also, being "from Canada" was kind of excited. i've never really felt like a minority (well, there was that time i went to a black club), so that was i felt a bit alienated for sure. also, thoughts like "what if something happens to me? what happens then?"

i gotta say, i have a lot more respect for all of Prov's international students. all the koreans, chinese, indians, and all others who is able to do that for eight months out of the year.

also, can't wait to go back. and travel beyond.
