I love @TMobile’s free int’l data and texting, but trade-off is clear: in the US, dropped calls like it’s 1999.
.@Frommers ??? The shame was that they saved money by taking it out of the library rather than buying it, as I would have.

So far, weather alone in #Vancouver is worth the visit. Sunny and a perfect 19 degrees Celsius (whatever that means).

The new(ish) Q70 Ltd - straight from Roosevelt Ave stop to #LGA - is great, except if the defunct local used to stop near your house. #me
