North Of The Border

I haven't been to Canada in over twenty years, so I am looking forward to the next few days in Vancouver, well Richmond either way the money looks funny and the people are nicer, so far same Canada I remember. I need some fries and gravy.

I think its a good omen as I was flipping the channels in my hotel to catch some of the football I missed by traveling, I saw not one but two ads for bacon. No, not what we think of as Canadian bacon, just good ol' bacon. Right there in the middle of football with the beer and pickup truck ads, is this a great country or what?

I went for a meal at a kind of pricey place called "Chop", because if you don't meet your per diem while traveling for work, you lose. I went for a big steak "the other red meat", and got a cesar salad to go with it. Now when I make a cesar salad, it gets a lot of bacon, because its the right thing to do, but I didn't expect what came out to the table. This salad was PACKED with big chunks of smokey bacon. This was no "bits", there was a ton of meat in this thing, I couldn't have done better my self. The lighting was low and the iphone has no flash, so you will just have to take my word for it. This was no game of find the bacon in the lettuce, there were several forkfuls that were more bacon than lettuce.

Hopefully I will have some time to soak up some of the local culture (read: bacon) and I can post about later in the week. So far off to an excellent start.
