Kanata

Q: Can you sing the Maple Leaf Forever?
A: No, I get tired after the first eight bars.

This evening – Kanata.

My first experience of Canada was flying into Vancouver and thinking it was a nice looking valley. My second was sailing on English Bay:

My third was drinking a local brew manufactured between two pillars of the Burrard Bridge and thinking it better than Millers. My fourth was jumping in the BMW 2002:

BMW 2002 Tii

… and zipping off to Whistler

… via the Lionsgate Bridge:

… in time for flapjacks with maple syrup, later to return with a young lady and a wander down to Kitsilano Beach.

However, I digress.  Here is everything about Canada you ever wanted to know:

Canada has the cutest Governor-General in the world:

… and has the better side of Niagara Falls, by the way:

The all important question of what the girls look like is answered here:

Concordia

… and here

but don’t be fooled, they can also look like this:

… and the men can look like this:

… and the land can look like this:

Tomorrow evening – a tribute to the U.S.A.

    Very interesting James, but do tell – what happened after “a wander down to Kitsilano Beach.”? Did you both ‘draw a line in the sand’?

    Sadly, it was an anticlimax.

    It’s such a cool model of America where you can keep food indefinitely in the garden.

    And the food’s good, too!

    Canada I think, does have the best flag in the world don’t you think? Even I no longer know the national anthem as they changed it to include some french verses.

    Lovely showcase of Canada but you’re not allowed to mention Canada without doing a picee on our ‘father’ Pierre Trudeau[rest his soul]. It’s against Canadian law. 🙂
