Friday was a long day. The fifteen odd hours in a bus were ok – but probably hell if you hadn’t just come back from India. Frankly, padded seats and air con made it completely bearable. Heck, I even got some sleep. Probably during some of the nicest scenery. Was so beautiful coming through the Rockies. Green pines clinging to the sides of steeply rising mountains. So clean and pure with snow topping the higher peaks.

We had a brief lunch rest in Jasper that included Root Beer.
We had a pretty crazed trip because two of the three bus drivers were closet Nazis. I think they both missed out on the police force due to height restrictions. The last guy suffered from a classic case of Little Man Syndrome. He didn’t appreciate my threat to his authority asking him to let a slightly tardy passenger onto to the bus that was doing 1km/hr. Cries of not being “their baby sitter”. Wow chill out dude. I’m sorry you aren’t happy with you life. 2 hours later he brought it up as we disembarked. I guess he had been thinking about it all the last leg. Poor guy. I just smiled and walked away. Pleased to be able to control my emotions more these days.
So we were collected at Vancouver by two new to me friends. So good to meet people who I can get along with again.

A nice dinner and catch up session for the girls and and early rise to get to the house I mean kitten we are sitting. Yeah – sounds crazy but we now have a kitten. Didn’t see that one coming…
