I began this last blog in April 2011 l as “Emily in America” while living in Jacksonville, Florida. I wrote a lot then, what I hope were funny, lighthearted accounts of my travels and tribulations in the USA. Leaving Florida, I continued to write about my travels in Germany, Guatemala and Mexico.

I’ve been in Montreal since 2012, learning about the law, eating poutine and scaling mountains.

  1. Great entry, Emily. But so many American cities have no centre. I think Oklahoma City was the most sinister I’ve ever seen. We were looking for a restaurant and there was NO ONE anywhere, just pavement and skyscrapers. It was completely dead! Not even a snack bar or something where one could inquire about a restaurant. Finally, after driving around, we arrived at the site of the bombing, and there we found a few people putting teddy bears on the wire fence, etc., and a policeman who informed us that there was ONE restaurant in the area, that had just opened in a refurbished warehouse!!

  2. Thanks Annette. Rereading this post it sounds much angrier and more depressing than I had intended. It just seems such a shame to build such horrible cities in such beautiful, warm places.

    This is a great video about suburbia!
