The Most Dangerous Coffee in Kingston
The Most Dangerous Coffee in Kingston

I’m in a transit planning class and our first assignment has us evaluating an intermodal journey.  This basically means we have to walk, skip and jump our way to another city via the street, public transit and some sort of other non-car mode…then write about what we liked and didn’t.  Grad School is tough (honestly […]

Moan the Podium

Day 10 and we stand in 5th place with 8 medals…even South Korea is ahead. I for one, place the blame squarely on these fellows. It is one thing to excessively fund the team, but it is something else to arrogantly predict them to win a huge chunk of the medals.  I haven’t heard of […]

Tremblant is an IntraWest instant resort-in-a-can, with the standard pedestrian village,  hot spring spa, tubing, skating and over-priced food stuffs.   […]
