It is a slow news week. I realise that this 'travel journal' is becoming more of a diary and will therefore sum up the week, briefly. The highlight was Thursday night when I met up with Lawrence and four of his mates, all Italians. After drinks at The Quay we decide to walk up to a Club called Section 3. On the way we pass Kelly Osbourne with two girl friends. The Italians chat her up. Kelly and friends turn up at the club after 15 minutes and join us. Kelly is square jawed, white lipsticked, confrontational but quite sweet. We have a laugh with her until one of the lads remarks on the fineness of her mother's posterior (or words to that effect). Kelly takes offence and storms off
Noticeable across Canada is the proliferation of National flags, The Maple Leaf. Each one is in pristine condition. I am told that if your flag needs replacing you can send it to the Office of Tourism and have it replaced - free of charge. Different from the tattered rags hanging back home. I've also noticed that windsocks never appear to be frayed. Shouldn't flags be made like windsocks? Flagsocks.
