Well I'm actually on a ferry heading to Newfoundland at the moment (fantastic that they've got free net access on here!! but only 3 pc's 2 of which are broken, so can't spend the whole night on here..)
Anyways, I was going to describe some of Halifax and what I've been up to since my last posting...
Rock!! :-) They are fantastic compared to the US buses, plenty of room I can almost stretch my legs out, and a real comfortable ride! :-) That and nice bus drivers rather than the traditional (though not always) grumpy US ones...
Ok, this is going to be a little odd, but the most unique experience of being Halifax? is the drivers... I'll paint you a scenario..
There I am between 2 streets about to cross the road where there is no pedestrian crossing, basically the same as going to cross commercial road... So I do the usual, I step up to the edge of the parked cars to wait for the traffic to clear, but wait a minute here, the cars on this reasonably busy road (and this is the biggest Canadian city east of Montreal, so bigger the Quebec City), stop to let me cross the road!
And that was not an isolated incident, like I said a little odd... But fairly unique... Not surprising though when you meet a few locals and find out how friendly and helpful they are though.
Is a nice place, but you're going to have to wait a while, there's a bit of a queue appearing behind me so I'm going to have to jump off for a while... Hopefully later tonight when everyone's asleep I can jump on again (assuming I'm awake!)
Take care everyone, and a big thanks to Bill & Debbie (who I met in Sydney, NS)
