I post to you now from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Aside from a few naps, I’ve been up since 3:30 a.m. Indiana time. For some reason, it was easier for me to get up at 3:30 than it usually is to get up at 6:00. Weird. In that time I flew from Indy to Newark, NJ, and then to Halifax. Then a 3+ hour drive from Halifax to Yarmouth. Along the way I saw a giant raccoon cross the road, but no moose, sadly.
The Canadians I have met and talked to so far have been very nice, and the last one in particular had that ever-so-neat Canadian accent, so that was fun. I’m sure they’ve got me pegged as a Statesider right off the bat, but they’re nice enough to not poke me with sticks or anything. The smile-and-nod does wonders when dealing with weirdo Americans.
There’s been some credit card-related excitement that I don’t want to get into right yet, but I am safely ensconced in a hotel with Internet access, so I guess things are okay for now.
More bulletins as events warrant, but for now, here’s a complete list of what I’ve consumed today:
- a bottle of lemon-raspberry water
- two (2) Frosted Cherry Pop-Tarts
- some orange juice (first flight)
- some REALLY GOOD cranapple juice (on the second flight)
- pretzels (also second flight)
- peanuts (also second flight)
I spit right in the face of healthy eating.
