« Fly to Nanaimo | Main | A pet painter in Redmond »

May 15, 2005



When I visited my friends in Redmond last weekend, I went across the border between Canada and the United States. Each side of the border was very different. On the U.S. side, when I went into the U.S., I had to get out of my car to go into the immigration office, line up, answer some questions,get my fingerprints and a picture taken, and pay $6.00. It was so crowded with several "complex" families that I had to wait more than an hour at the U.S. immigration office. Why do I have to pay $6.00 to have my fingerprints taken? I don't like having my fingerprints taken because it reminds me of the incident I experienced at a japanese police station when I was caught because of speeding. On the other hand, when I came back to Canada, the Canadian immigration officer was so laid back that I didn't even have to show him my passport. It was easier and quicker than getting through the tollbooth on japanese highways.


Hahhaaah. I'm not too bright today. Great post!
