Canada’s last stop

Prince Rupert. The name (derives of a prince born in czechoslovakia) was voted for in a public poll in search of a city name. Despite the fact that it's the rain capital of the world, I had a beautiful sunny day here. I stayed at the Java Lodge which is run by a japanese family and I have to admit, it was one of the nicest experiences so far regarding a B&B (the hostel was full). The rooms just felt so nice, also because of the morning light. There was breakfast available in their lobby (felt a bit lonely there), as well as in the internet cafe downstairs. Moreover I had the possibility to use the room until the afternoon and they told me to just drop the keys onto the stairs when I leave.

Being a pretty small town (although there's a big harbour) I decided to go on a hike to the local mountain. This time it was a pretty lonesome experience, despite the fact that it's the only real hike right next to the town. But up there I had a real nice view over the whole bay and on my way back down I met K. who told me about his life, some energy gathering techniques, 9/11 supermacys and the global economy, while inhaling some greeneries. Arriving back at the town through a jungleske shortcut, I bought some stuff and started the several miles walk (2-3) to the ferry terminal.

In the anticipation of sitting 2 days on a ferry, walking is not bad I guess.
