Wednesday Wabi


In Canada, there are duplexes that have non-matching facades.

In Canada, the blocks are a quarter mile long.

In Canada, you can get something called a Jamaican Pumpkin. (I still don’t quite know what a Jamaican Pumpkin is.)

In Canada, you can get the best orange juice you’ll ever drink in your life. It is the President’s Choice brand Valencia juice, and it’s probably better for all concerned that I can’t get it in the states because that’s all I would drink.

In Canada, you can go to a wax museum so terrible all of the wax figures have nametags so you can find out who they are.

In Canada, the post office is in the drugstore.

In Canada, they make really tasty gluten free pizza.

In Canada, you can go to a completely gluten free restaurant and somehow magically get glutened eating poutine.

Aforementioned poutine of hate. Otherwise delicious! And now I know what it tastes like so I can make it at home.

Twenty feet from the edge of Niagara Falls!

Lovely pictures! And I’m always down for the facts concerning our neighbors to the north.

Also, that IS the cutest skeleton in the history of skeletons. I just want to run my fingers through his cowlick 😉 So adorable!

Sounds like an awesome trip! I could go for some of that OJ — though lately I’ve been buying Tropicana not-from-concentrate, and it’s actually darn good for the price. Did you go to the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum while you were in Niagara?

I’m sure I’ll have more Canada facts the next time I see you, Pam! His cowlick is killing me, too 🙂

Lisa, I’ll check out the Tropicana! And yes, we DID go to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! How did you know?

What are the brown chunks on the poutine?
