    Oh Canada!

    Alright, Took my first trip this summer.. Me and a couple bros went to Canada.. Such a friggin hassle getting over the border! We were basically harassed.. They claimed they smelled pot.. NOPE.. Whatever..

    We slept in the back of my buddys car the first night.. So warm and uncomfy.. There is a 7/11 on each corner and everyone loves Slurpees.. I had atleast 10 of them.. The prices are outrageous on alot of things.. They went to a porn shop and a dvd was like 70 dollars.. WOW... But yah otherwise the exchange rate was ok and the prices were not too bad..

    2nd night we rented a horrible motel for 90 bucks a night.. Had just 1 bunk bed and a box fan.. And it was dirty.. Oh well.. Some chick and her bf were fighting the whole night across the hall.. and at 6 in the morning she sets off the fire alarm and the manager was gone and they had a bunch of indians working and didn't understand how to work anything so it was going off for over a half hour.. Not being racist with the indian comment but no one could communicate with them..

    There is alot of drunk kids running around the streets too.. Kinda funny..

    There was alot of ups and downs.. But overall im glad I went besides the hole the got burned into my pocket! If u wanna know more just ask.. ALOT HAPPENED!! Sorry I just needed to do this.. Even though no one really cares cuz Canada isn't that great anyway haha

    They smelled pot on Vikez4Lyfe or his teenage buddies?

    It's not the exchange rate that's bad. It's the damn fee they charge to make the exchange.

    I still have $30 Canadian dollars I felt wasn't worth paying the fee to change back to American.

    I'll save it for my next trip.

    I know what you mean...I still have 80 Kroners that wasn't worth exchanging. I'll mail it to my cousin and have him send me some good canned Norwegian food! :lol:

    Yah Singer I had Fries and Gravy.. They call it Poutine or something? Pretty nasty actually.. And the ketchup sucked.. And we went to Mcdonalds and the burgers were like 4 dollars a peice.. WTF.. I could get the same thing on the dollar menu here in the US!

    We went to Tim Hortons!! I'm a HUGE coffee drinker.. One of my weird goals in life is the become the world coffee drinker champ.. I drink about 2 pots a day.. And I just started about a year ago.. Im HOOKEDDDDD

    Yah, they smelled pot?! I was like what the hell.. Give me a drug test.. They didn't call my bluf..

    I said the prices were outrageous on SOME THINGS.. But otherwise it's alright.. Like a porn dvd costed like 30-70 dollars!!

    The enchange rate is only like 1.4 percent or something.. And the fee was only a dollar to do the transaction.. Not sure why I thought it was bad!

    GO TO THE NEW SKATEPARK ALL THE CANADIENS ON HERE!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FUN.. The sideways bowl is mad crazy.. Such a rush rippin it up there
