    Well tommorrow morning I leave for Ottawa, only my second trip to Canada and the first in daylight. I'm bringing three still and two video cameras and a crapload of Vanilla Coke. I just wanted to thank you all. In the last couple of weeks you have inspired me to look at photography in a whole new light and I will be looking for photo oppurtunities all over rather than just aircraft which is the reason for the trip.

    BTW, I will be there for Canada Day. I ask all you Canadians, what is the proper expresion of the holiday (ie Merry Christmas, Happy Easter, Hallalujea its beer day again, etc....)

    Hope you have a good time up in Ottawa. I think it's "Happy" Canada Day if you're wondering. And don't worry about running out of Vanilla Coke, we got tons here.

    Heh, well I'm back! Only have a dozen rolls of film to develop, not bad for three days. It was a blast. The Vanilla coke was for the trip up. Can't have too much Vanilla Coke.

    Canada was wonderful. One thing that struck me was how beautiful the women are. I wasn't expecting a noticable difference but I was pleasantly surprised. I think I need to move. I got to meet several members of the discussion forum on my site and that was cool. Saw the fireworks at Parliment in Ottawa and saw Lillix perform live. Very nice.

    One thing that for some reason fascinated me was the ability to buy milk in bags. I'm still cracking up over that. :)
