Thoughts from travel

Doug spent all last week in British Columbia, except for a day in Seattle. Herewith, his thoughts on the West Coast:

  • They sure have a lot of those big pointy things with trees and such on them. It'd be sort of nice if they had those in Saskatchewan.
  • Contrary to popular myth, there is no street corner in Vancouver with four Starbucks locations. Yet.
  • Everyone should buy Tory Cassis's debut CD, Anywhere But Here.
  • You'd think people would be a lot more relaxed. If Doug lived in Vancouver, nothing would get him uptight. "What? My clothes are on fire? Well, damn. I'll need to replace this shirt."
  • But most of all, be it ever so flat, dreary, cloudy, cold, leafless, small, and humble, there's no place like home.
