The drive across the northern part of the US, then a good chunk of Canada, was amazing, something never to be forgotten. One of these days, when I have my drawing supplies and scanner (still in Portland with 13 days to get here), I'll write and draw a few episodes for Adventure's Ink.
Right now I'm sitting on the floor of the room that will be our bedroom in a very cool 7th floor apartment on South Park Street, overlooking Victoria Park and a couple of blocks down from the Lord Nelson Hotel. I think we finally arrived :-) Things got a little crazy, closing in on desperate, when the apartment we'd thought would be waiting for us turned out to be a pit. Just so you don't feel too envious of us being in Canada, I'll just mention now that all the assholes aren't only on that side of the border.
The city is compact, easy to walk if you don't mind hills, and with at least 6 colleges and universities, has a large population of young people. We're thinking a lot of them use copious amounts of beer as a study aid.
We don't get our own wi-fi connection until Tuesday but I was happily surprised to find one open and available now. It's later here than anywhere else in North America - Atlantic Time - and I'm worn out from driving, walking, lugging and all the rest. This hasn't just been an adventure, it's been a trip.
More soon and love to you all.
