We met up after lunch and convoyed to Selkirk with our new walkie-talkies which were the best purchase ever after we got lost in Swift Current and had to phone via England to find each other. Selkirk is where Evan lives and is 45 mins outside Winnipeg up near Lake Winnipeg. On the first day we went down to Winnipeg and wondered around a bit - we saw the forks (where the red river and the assiniboine rivers meet), some penis-shaped bridge and the ugliest 1970's style cathedral in the world hidden behind a prettier relic but it was a nice, green open city and Becca has decided to make it her friend
Last night we went to a traditional Manitoba house party which as it turned out was pretty similar to any English house party but more crazy. Having woke up with the worst hangover ever we headed to A&W family burgers for lots of grease, as usual eyes were way bigger than belly and nearly died. Later in the afternoon we headed to the Lake which actually looks like a sea - you cant see the opposite bank at all (apparently the 13th biggest lake in the world!) We paddled in the ice cold water and then got an ice cream - the hangover sweats definatly needed to be quenched!! Now we are heading to Thunder Bay tommorrow leaving the lovely hospitality of Evan's parents and Evan behind...
