Culture Shock

After the long drive we ended up at our "home" in Edmonton.
and it took me a week to get over the "culture shock".
The view now (if I get high enough on the property) 
and then. I don't want to show more, it is too depressing.

Luckily the temperatures have been on the mild side and
living in the camper trailer hasn't been too bad so far.
I did a fair job of cleaning the inside, even if hubby said he
did the job already. It was therapy, just to keep me occupied 
while J.P. was gone on his 12 hour absence to work.

The "his" and "her" view of a trailers inside.

I have not bee around much and therefore I have very limited internet access. 

Luckily I have a pretty good sense of orientation, but with no GPS 
(J.P. uses it in the bus) it is quite a challenge to find back home
with the traffic so incredible. For the moment I avoid driving on
these roads if I can, but eventually I will have to do it.

We have been looking into housing, and so far our search has ended 
with the the same discouraging result. NOTHING.

A minimum one year rent and no pets policy seems to be the 
standard requirement.
And if you think you are lucky and find a pet friendly place, 
the friendliness ends as soon as the pet is above 30 lb. . 
So, our major disadvantages are:  the short term rent and our sweet
dog Molly.
