Bill,

Well, that's not fair at all. I would love to visit Canada. When I was young and thinking of places I might like to visit - all the romantic and crazy bucket list locations - Canada never made the cut-off. But now, I have heard so many wonderful things about so many of its beautiful landmarks and people. --sigh-- Yep. I'd go there in a red-hot second.

Thanks for making that worse. Yeah.

*smile*

Canada
Growing up in Detroit, I traveled to Windsor a few times over the years. During the last twenty months f my enlistment in the Air Force at the Grand Forks Air base in North Dakota, I had the occasion to travel to Winnipeg, Manitoba Province of Canada. Several things stood out to me in retrospect. Some of the most beautiful women I have ever seen in my entire life. Friendly and accommodating. Had I the sense I was born with, I would probably have married and settled down there. I did not, instead I opted to look to Minneapolis, Minnesota for romance and nearly married an underage, immature girl of sixteen, narrowly escaping with my freedom intact. Whew!

I hope so, too! We love our Canadian neighbors. And we have wonderful Canadian writers on this site. Thanks for sharing that fun memory. I think that was nothing compared to the treatment we got trying bring Asian food back to the US from Canada. Sheesh!

    Is Canada the hub for Asian cuisine?

reply by lyenochka on 01-Sep-2021
    No, it's just we were closer to Vancouver's Asian market than the one in our own state.

I've never been to Canada, but if I went I would avoid the big cities and see the countryside. It seems you were always squeezed between brothers. lol. Sounds like fun. I was an only child.

Is this really a piece of fiction? It reads like a non-fiction. It's your childhood memory of visiting Canada. I have visited a few cities there like Vancouver, Toronto, Thunder Bay and Winnipeg. I like Vancouver the best. It is a beautiful coastal city with very good Chinese food and sushi.

Well done.

From my perspective Canada and the United States have tended to merge into one, but I suppose that is a rather uneducated view. There must be many differences. Perhaps it is similar to the case of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

    The only mean thing in Canada is their hockey players. They are brutal.

Bill - Good introduction. I am looking forward to the series. I was born in Chicago and spent several summers on a farm in Leonidas Michigan on the St Joseph river. Does that ring any bells with you? - Jerry

    I looked it up. I have heard of the name Leonidas, and I see St. Joe*s River starts at Lake Michigan. Looks like a nice plac3 on Google.

I enjoyed your prologue to your book, and look forward to reading about your adventures in those other countries. You did a good job with this info. You entice readers to read what will be posted next.
Thanks for sharing.

Sounds interesting. You certainly saw several parts of the world, not all of them tourist spots. It's interesting to read about other people's travels, as I've never been outside of the U.S., except to Canada. They say being in the military gives you a chance to see the world, and in your case it surely did. Happy travel writing. judi
