This time I’m here in Regina, Saskatchewan, a province which I’ve discovered has as many people in it as my block in Manhattan. I got here via the means you see below (shown at the rest stop in Swift Current) and it was actually a much more pleasant journey than you’d imagine. I ended up getting a window seat and not being beheaded, my two main goals. (Actually, they now search your bags before getting on a Greyhound bus in Canada, something they don’t do in the states.) People kept telling me that the landscape was dull and endless but I found it fascinating. I’ve never seen so much sky in my entire life. Really amazing and lovely. And despite the child kicking my seat most of the trip, I enjoyed sitting next to a member of the one ethnic group I never get to ride next to on the subway: a native person. I thanked her by getting bits of my sandwich on her. Oops.

I also enjoyed our driver, who said things like this: “is anyone getting off in Moose Jaw? This is important… because we’re not stopping in Moose Jaw.”

    North, there may have been beheadings. Just luckily not on my bus. And thanks! No humidity either!

    Deas, you have a dog?

    I guess you just aren’t cut out to be a bus rider

    I was just happy to have ketchup chips.

    Seat-kicking children would make me want to toss them out the window for the moose to eat. If, ya know, moose ate kids.
