Another day of driving, this time from Regina to Winnipeg. More sweeping prairies. We had trouble with the stage flats in the wind leaving Regina and had to stop for about an hour to make the necessary adjustments.
Although it slowed us down, we did have a chance to take more pics of the local landscape, and even the local fauna:
This little prairie dog poked his head out for us. Did you know that these guys chirp like birds? Zi took the opportunity to assail a tractor in a nearby field. He had an interesting day: As we stopped to grab an ice cream, he struck up a conversation with another band of travelers. It turns out they were a members of a travelling sex show. who will pretty much do anything on stage if the price is right. They liked Zi and tried to recruit him. Oddly enough, they looked totally normal! It creeped us all out a little.
We hit Winnipeg early for a change and were able to see the place in daylight! The downtown hostel we are staying at was a far cry from the one at Canmore, or the university residences in Regina, and the above picture is far more flattering than the place really is. But it is close to both the theatre spaces. It was nice to have a night off.
