    Several Times.

    I live in Michigan. I've gone to Maine on several occasions, and New York on several others. We almost always go through Canada on our way. I suppose I've never done anything truly of interest in the country. I've slept in a hotel there once or twice. I've been to some gas...

    Canada, Eh?

    I went to Canada to see the Niagara Falls a few years after I visited France. All I remember is that there were **** shops on the street and I wanted to go in, but I was with my parents. I also remember their music video station.

    Been There And Studied It

    I was fortunate to be at Northwestern while R. Barry Farrell was still alive. I was in his Canadian Studies program. Probably the personal highpoint was getting a bit drunk with the late Robert Bourassa, Liberal Premier of Quebec. Rene Levesque came to NU also. I have always been...

    Never Had a Bad Time North of the Border

     I have been there several times and almost to every province but Nunavut, Quebec and NS. It was a given that no matter where I went, there were always great people who were having a good time. Like I went to the most touristy place I could, Niagara Falls. I was cutting...

    It was cool, the US dollar was kicking butt that day so I bought a bunch of stuff. The liqour is so much better up there, and stronger. It stayed light until midnight which was really weird to me. I just hung around town, went hiking, saw stuff, went shopping, drank a lot, went...
