Sometimes you attend a church event for families with children that includes a slip ‘n slide, jumping castles, craft tables, bubbles, amazing snacks, and live music, but where the most popular attraction is the face painting. I would say that the volunteers, some of whom have never painted a face before, did pretty well, wouldn’t you say? This post with practically… Continue reading Facepaint deluxe
My time in Canuckistan is done. Perhaps for good, perhaps not. To be honest, in all the years of travelling and staying in places for more than a few months, when I leave, I’m never sure if I’ll be back. I hope I will get back to Canuckistan.
