April 20, 2008

Greetings from Nelson
Posted by Rita Wong


The drive from Vancouver to Nelson went by quickly thanks to Bryan Pike’s excellent driving, Meg Tilly’s delicious home-baked cookies, and Heather Burt and David Jones’ friendly conversation and company (well, everyone was friendly and generous, actually).  What did I do?  Mostly slept, catching up on rest after a hectic week of late nights and marathon grading.  Had a yummy mushroom and tofu hotpot for dinner, at the New China Restaurant. I didn’t take the photo here, but uploaded it because it expresses how grateful I feel for all the work that makes such a road trip possible.  All you might see is the little green shoot above the ground (or the writers parachuted into the classrooms and libraries), but so much is going on underneath to make it possible. Happy to be here with such wonderful travel mates, and looking forward to the week.  Tomorrow, we hit Trail!
