Yes, I'm Still Alive

Contrary to what you might think, I am alive and kicking. Had an awful cold/flu for the first few weeks after arriving in Vancouver. All those people hacking on the plane did it to me, I think.

But now I've re-joined the land of the living! I like being able to breathe normally again.

A few first impressions from the day we landed:

* How weird to walk into a store and understand people's conversations, without even trying.

* Nobody clapped when the plane landed safely. I like that European custom!

* Free water in restaurants. A novel concept.

* How can there be an entire row in the grocery store dedicated to various types of salad dressing?
