Two countries at once

Have you watched the movie "A Walk to Remember" or have read the book? I will never forget one of Jamie's wishes, to be in two places at once. Landon made this happen by bringing her to a boundary of two states (North Carolina and Virginia). Ever since seeing that movie, I thought to myself, I should do that.

Dramatic Sunset at the border

Last Sunday, my parents and I went to Seattle to buy Jollibee, visit Pike Market, and attend Sunday Mass at St. James Cathedral. On our way back to Canada, there was a long line of cars at the border.

Border

We were right at the Peace Arch. I told my parents I will go down to stretch my legs and to take photos. I was so giddy since I felt like this is the only chance I have to be at this park.

This is from the US side.

This is the Canada side.

I did what Jamie did, I placed my right foot on Canada while my left foot is still in the US. I was smiling from ear to ear, thanking God for the opportunity to do that.

International Boundary

My right feet (left in this photo) is in Canada while my left feet (right in this photo) is in US.

I was so happy! Upon arriving home, my sisters and I were discussing where else can we go that we can stand or be at more than two countries at once. Do you have any suggestions?

Last, I love what's engraved inside the arch, "May these gates never be closed." The border between Canada has been "open" (no walls)  for more than 200 years and hopefully, it stays that way.
