We're still trying to interpret this one. Are those cattail reeds or flying jalapeno peppers?

Marmot mural. I need to find out more about this. Is the marmot extinct or merely in danger of becoming so?

Coming back on the bus we could see the regional government building (which has a rotunda like the U.S. Capitol) completely lit up with white lights. It was really beautiful.

Here’s my SAT analogy for today. Vancouver is to (blank) as Victoria is to (blank).

The choices are:

a. London, Paris

b. Los Angeles, Catalina

c. San Francisco, Paris

d. Los Angeles, Santa Barbara

If you used the SAT way of reasoning to solve it, it should be London, Paris, because they are both large cosmopolitan cities separated by a body of water. There’s a case for LA, Catalina because for this to really work, both cities should be part of the same state. If you used Leah logic, the answer is San Francisco, Paris, because those are the two cities that seem analogous to Vancouver and Victoria to me experientially.  Erik once knew someone from Victoria who thought Victoria was like Santa Barbara. But we can’t figure out that comparison at all. Maybe I’m stretching with this. It’s kind of late and we were on the bus for awhile.
