Introduction: Robot's Canadian Vacation

Well, its about time I get this ***** up, its been about 5 days since my return from the land of moose, booze, and hockey.. so lets get to it:

I went back up to Canada to see family, friends and get a hold on my grandfathers situation with his heart/diabetes problem. I mention my vacation in a forum post about 2 weeks ago, and that I would be bringing robot along for the ride, but as luck had it whilst I was packing I tucked him away and wasn't able to find him until my last day, and the process of traveling back home. So enjoy the scecery of southern Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Maryland:

I went to the U.S. before the security jump (I live in Canada to) and the only thing the guy asked us, besides the typical do you have food questions, was if I was a twin. (My sister was there)

Haha. Gotta love those border guards.

author
bumpus (author)LinuxH4x0r2008-07-12

Really, what will he be doing in Iran?

author
LinuxH4x0r (author)bumpus2008-07-12

Following me around. I'm going to visit family there.

Not to sterotype, I hope you don't find this offensive or anything, but if I understand right, it's kind of dangerous to travel to the middle east right now...anyway, stay safe! :)

in Saudi Arabia it's not soo dangerous as it is stressful, because in my old school (when i went to school there, before my mom decided to stay in Montreal with her parents) the entrances were guarded by tanks and horribly hidden machine guns and I'm pretty sure that beats the stress of some exam:P

author
Lithium Rain (author)Tobita2008-08-06

Wow! That would be awful!

author
LinuxH4x0r (author)Tobita2008-08-01

Yeah, in Iran you see a cop or member of the army or sepah on every street.

author
LinuxH4x0r (author)Lithium Rain2008-07-12

Actually I feel more threatened in the US! Security here is crazy, especially if you look or have a foreign name. Anyways, Iran is a relatively safe country. Its Afghanistan and Iraq that are dangerous. Thanks (no offense taken)

To misquote Noel Coward;

"Very flat, Canada".

author
bumpus (author)Kiteman2008-07-12

hehe, yep, most of Midwestern Canada is like that, not so much in the east though
