What You Might See on a Typical Day in Halifax, Nova Scotia PT II

If you asked me today, I’d say, “gorgeous fall weather that’s helping me out of a bout of typical girl funk,” but that would be boring.  Love it or hate it, this is the true story of observations from an outsider, part deux.  Also I’m in a typical girl funk.  You might be able to tell.

What You Might See on a Typical Day in Halifax, Nova Scotia:

  • Cars that seek out pedestrians to cross in front of them, whether they are or not.  Be prepared to abruptly stop in the middle of busy and/or quick moving traffic while the pedestrian either isn’t quite in the street yet/is nearly all the way to the other side safely/or is not really crossing at all, but having a conversation at a crosswalk.  WATCH OUT.
  • Sweet potato fries served with curry mayo.  It’s the sweet potato dip of choice.
  • Canadian Football League commercials, begging you please, “YOU NEED TO SEE THESE GUYS PLAY.”  Don’t worry, football isn’t their only job.
  • Deep fried pepperoni.  In case you got sick of healthier, non-fried pepperoni.
  • Meat-loving vegetarians.  The cost of beef and chicken isn’t cheap here, y’all.  It’s not a lifestyle, in this case it is a method of survival.
  • While moseying about through an intersection (you have a green light to go straight,) you will flinch and perhaps even lay on the horn when you see a driver about to make a left turn in front of you poised and ready to go, visibly turning the wheel all the way to the left.  One rear-ender and he’s in your path.  Apparently not turning your wheel before you turn is not part of driver’s ed in Nova Scotia.  Buckle up!
  • Mozzarella sticks (called mozza sticks) with a side of sour cream…?
  • Tourist websites with non-operating phone numbers.
  • Regularly scheduled tours that do not operate on a regularly scheduled basis (surprise!)
Please God, Pleeeeease see these guys play!
