hi all -

i have wanted to come to Stratford, Ontario for a while now - It's a pretty - no - very pretty town -
that is a festival centre for plays for the warm months -

it has a 'season' and then shuts down - for the cold months -

i have had a really nice time -

and I plan to return -

the avon river is a slow - 'puntable' river - with beautiful white swans - slowly swiming around in it -

along with wild ducks - and other geese like creatures -

so pretty and the water flows slowly - and the trees are blooming -

and it's warm -

ok!

greetings from Stratford,

love,

Mark

Mark if you're a coffee drinker I suggest Balzacs on the main street. All the actors go there and they have this big wood-fired coffee roaster right in the middle. It is sublime.

I don't know Mark, if you drank it the worst that would happen is you would be absinthe-minded for a while. :p

Mark,

Glad you are enjoying yourself and thanks for letting us in on the fun.

Much love,
Larry

PS: "absinthe-minded"...groan. Please don't get me started! ;\)
