In the Neighbourhood

After being told by the US Homeland Security that I was not allowed to leave the country to visit my family and friends in Finland, Chris and me took a little trip to the countryside yesterday. We visited a small local maple farm.

I have always had a soft spot for goats, and was thrilled to see some, as well as a two-week-old calf called Cow.

We also visited an old cemetery in Sanitaria Springs, which was once a thriving location for a sanitarium, whose sulpho-phosphate springs and homeopathic treatments were immensely popular in the late 19th century. I guess the sanitarium no longer exists - I wasn't able to find any information online as to what happened to it. The town itself is tiny and run-down.

I am sorry to hear about the travel restrictions. So strange and unfair. Not surprising for HSA, though, to be strange and unfair (spoken by a true American).

I am jealous of:
- your dress!
- maple syrup!
- goats!

I hope that cemetery has nothing to do with the sanitarium. (Kidding!)
