We went to Canadah back in August, taking the long drive up through western Pennsylfuckingvania, through Buffalo, and into the land of our friendly northern neighbors, so polite and shining and worthy full of high lawful good purpose. They really are friendly folk--look at this picture from Niagara Falls, ON:
|What a Helpful Country!|
Niagara Falls is a nightmare. It's like what helpful Canadians expect Americans want from a tourist shithole. That aside, the falls themselves are perfectly cool, as we found on the obligatory boat ride.

Awesome vids shot by Ilse as the boat driver powered up the boat and pointed into the current while we were surrounded by Horseshoe Falls. Brave, brave videography.
Then we went to Toronto. See above. Below: why I hate Canada.
|This is a monument to war dead. From the Boer War.|
|Actual proof that it's all about the Boer War.|
|Bronzed corpses of Canadians who died in the Boer War.|
So there's a reason we chose Toronto.

Okay, that's it, because the rest is trophies and stuff. Thanks to Ilse for the photography.
