I love all your photothreads, flar! I've downloaded Chicago thread and show it to friends when they ask me why do I want to move to the US

What an awful place. "F#ck you guy #27" pretty much sums it up.

I was asked by an Iranian ex-pat work colleague many years ago while I was in Buffalo if I would cross the border and meet his cousin who lived in Hamilton to pick up a large rug and smuggle it back into the U.S. in the trunk of my car. (Apparently at the time it was illegal to import any Iranian goods into the U.S.) Foolishly, I agreed. When I got to the border checkpoint going into Canada I was asked what the purpose of my visit was. I told the agent I was just going in to sightsee. He asked me where I was going. Not thinking fast enough, I blurted out that I was going to Hamilton. I was immediately asked to pull over for inspection. These photos clearly show why the agent was suspicious.

Needless to say I chickened out on smuggling the rug, figuring I would face another inspection on the way back into the U.S. And I never did do any sightseeing in Hamilton. Until now.

lol, Hamilton can leave a bad impression. It's actually not anywhere near as bad as it looks. It's just as safe as anywhere else in Ontario.
