prairies are great if you like open spaces or grew up in or around a rural type setting. The draw to the prairies are the low land hills in the grasslands and you're the only tall thing around.

I remember a trip from here to London Ontario......we went through the prairies..of course.  I remember weeping at the thought of having to do it again.  It was so boring, I felt like gouging my eyes out.    We ended up doing a SUPER detour down through the states.

I don't think it's the desolation.  It's just the dullest landscape ever, (to me).  As if someone intentionally designed it to have absolutely no interest.

lol well you can thank the glaciers they did it. All that good soil that is in the U.S., it used to be in Canada. Glaciers came, pushed all the good soil out, hence we have the shield and trees. Only places where the good soil stayed were in the Fraser Valley and Southwest Ontario.

Well, I'm quite partial to Sydney and some parts of Scotland. I love being in Glassglow because it was so beautiful and the people, OMG, so sweet and helpful even though I can't understand what they're saying half the time.

  I'm not overtly fond of Kuala Lumpur as it's not exactly the cleanest city in the world. I'm talking about smog and the fact that the public washroom is for show only. I don't pee well in Asia. The food, however, is to die for. Love eating like a pig there.

Cool! I have been to Glasgow too. I had a great time.

Sydney looks cool. I used to work with an Aussie that said Melbourne was the place to be. I have never been.

  PC, I could imagine driving across the praries would be long. It is such a huge land mass.


Funny, we used to have cousins come to Vancouver from Sask., and they hated the mountains??!! They felt closed in and closterphobic (sp?).  I guess it is all where we are raised?

One other town I like is Field, B.C.
 Beautiful mountains, cool vibe.

Van,

We have very simmilar tastes in cities.  Have you ever bben to Atlin BC?  very funky place - i knew 1/2 the town in 3 days .  only place i;ve ever been where someone walked into a crowded bar and yelled a round for the house!!

My favorite city is Dunhuang - in western china near the stans just north of tibet.  fab food - great smells - the only place i've ever seen a human skull for sale as a bowl -  amaaaaaazing art Magao caves with 10,000 bhuddhas - hindu - muslims - buddists all living in peace.

 I find something majestic about the prairies , as if one's standing alone between heaven and earth  with nothing to intervene between Maker and Man.

 Oh sure.....you can dress it up with pretty speech, but it'll still be a barren wasteland to me.
