To Be or Not to Be?
The question on the mind of the Ouisar-san. Now posted to you.
Some of you have expressed
delight concern as to where I`ve been. Not only have I not been aggravating readers who happen upon “Hey From Japan”, I`ve not been stirring the pot in the comments section of other bloggers sites and FB pages. The secret is this-I`ve been fully immersed in scouting the next exotic location for the blog tag line. Starting last June, the Clampits began entertaining several options to pitch the tent.
I provided Spouse with my list of “Must Haves” for the ideal location.
1) Palm Trees, Banyan Trees, Coconut Trees, Banana Trees, Olive trees or any other Species of tree that does not turn yellow, red and drop it`s leaves in winter.
2) Within 30 degrees of the equator
3) Does not have a cost of living requiring I abandon my current occupation of touring and laundry.
4) Must be at least 4,000 miles away from my family so they have to call before they show up.
He chose Canada.
So here`s the question.
Do we need another blog from Canada? I personally follow at least 4 Canadian bloggers. As an American, can I spot the cultural differences? I have some fodder set aside from our “look see” trip that might be entertaining….
One thing I know from my Canadian side of the family is that even though they`ve never put a man on the moon, you can put one in to orbit by provoking one with something along the lines of, “Canada is really just a northern extension of the US.”
Fighting words. Don`t say it unless you can run fast. In the snow.
I read hilarious author Leanne Shirtliffe`s article “You Know You`re a Canadian When…” and had no idea what any of it meant. Apparently although I`m half Canadian it is blood only.
This leads me to suspect significant differences previously unnoticed.
Spouse left last weekend. The Offspring and I will be cramming every little bit of Japan we haven`t seen in to the next 5 months so I`ll continue on until June or so.
In the meantime-
Canada- to be or not to be? What do you think?
