Travelling with Sue is excellent... Took a lot of pics, of the signs announcing cities and the paint testing strips. She's going back to her roots, very Asian.
Our car is super-full, we packed with the philosophy of bringing a bunch of stuff with us here and then taking a subset to travel overseas later... And we got a bit carried away. So we have tons of stuff, I'm thinking we'd use more stuff if more of it were accessible, but meh... I guess that happens when we don't think of how big stuff will be in the car...
Staying with Guillaume, and he showed me Kingston. It's excellent. Went to a Cambodian restaurant (had some spicy jackfruit and papaya stuff, very interesting); saw Queens (nice place, buildings very old and grey and official looking), it was nice.

First Entry

Or maybe the second, depending on whether emailing worked

rain 16 °C

We'll be leaving later this week for the Maritimes (not the Atlantic provinces, as my dad so helpfully pointed out), via some subset (or maybe superset) of Kingston, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, and Jonquiere.

We got some travel books out of the library.


Mostly I'm just trying to figure out how to use this blog input page, so this post is sort of a duplicate of the one I just tested through email submission....

If we keep at it future posts might be even more interesting.

Also on the way to the library Sue had her first legitimate highway driving experience. She drives very skillfully. And angrily.
