Birthday in Canada

Canada looked a lot like the United States...only more boring. Well I can't say all of Canada...but at least Toronto and areas south to Niagra Falls. I quickly got used to the whole Kilometers thing. I never went faster than 100 KM/hr which is 62 MPH. The PT Cruiser rental had a trip computer which read 9.0 liters per 100KM...I think. Gas was expensive equating to almost $4 a gallon ($1.079 per liter almost 4 liters in a gallon). Once we arrived we drove straight to Niagara Falls. The Falls were neat..not really impressive...just neat. We then gambled and lost. For dinner we went to Frickers. A neat pub...good beer semi expensive. Yadda yadda yadda we went to bed early. The next morning we were in search of breakfast. I wanted a simple buffet. I rolled upon a place that advertised $6.95 all you can eat breakfast. In fact all they sold was a breakfast buffet. The selection was quite simple...but good. We thought we were getting a cheap meal. Nope. Water...bottled only....$2.95. Coffee....I had one cup.....$2.85. After all said and done it was a $22 meal. Won't go there again.

For the flight back we checked in early and were high on the list. The flight there netted us both first class seats. On the way back....only on first class seat open. Kelli didn't want it so I took it. I had a nice grilled Salmon lunch. Cheap weekend. We used hotel points for a free room. Rental car was $36 all in. Flight round trip was just under $100 round trip for both of us. Not too bad. Once again we have gambled on Easter 3 years running!
