Pete's Log: random observations from America

Entry #1589, (Random Crap)
(posted when I was 30 years old.)

I've realized I think in Celsius now, not in Fahrenheit.

I got into a hotel elevator in Denver and looked for the ground floor button and didn't find it. Luckily, the 1 button had a star next to it, which reminded me that buildings in the US start at 1.

Not having sales tax included in the sticker price is confusing. Montana has the best solution to that problem: no sales tax at all.

Moon pies taste just as good as I remembered. Also Cream Soda is awesome.

Staying in a hotel where the only things I found in walking distance were an Outback Steakhouse, a Chinese restaurant, a McDonalds, and a few gas stations reminded me that if I do ever move back to the U.S., it will have to be to a walkable city.

75 miles an hour now seems like a rather slow speed to drive at. Especially on a near-empty highway.

The temptation to move to the Rockies and become a ski bum is stronger than it's been in a while.
