你知道加拿大的商场几点关门吗?赴加旅游让我了解了很多加拿大和美国的不同。


AFTER crossing the bridge, we were officially in Canada.

There were many differences between the United States and Canada. In the US, the speed limit signs were in miles. In Canada, they were in kilometres. Road signs advertising tourist attractions in Canada were about one-quarter the size of the US. Canadians must have better eyes. In Canada, they have "washrooms" marked "Gents" and "Ladies". In the US we have "restrooms" for "Men" and "Women."

We went to a mall (商业街) after we checked in at a local motel (汽车旅馆). We were surprised when the stores started closing at 5 pm. Most people don't get home from work until five, so how does anyone find time to shop? Most malls in America close at around 9 pm. We later found out that we visited Canada during a holiday, and the stores usually do not close that early.

The next day, my parents and I rode a tourist train. The ride was a little boring at first. There was not much to see except rocks and trees. Then, the track ran along the shore of a wide river. On the opposite shore were mountains. When there were no trees in the way, we got a great view of the mountain and its reflection (倒映) in the river. It was beautiful. Then, the train went across a bridge. Far below was a dam. It was so high that I was a little scared.

At the end of the train ride, we got out and explored a canyon (峡谷) and its surroundings for two hours. To admire the canyon, we had to climb up some steep stairs about 400 metres high. There were many large waterfalls in the area. There were also strange insects and bees that followed people and hovered (盘旋) above ones head, refusing to be shaken off. After we shook off a bee that would not leave mum alone, we could not wait to get back on the train for the return trip.
