One of my sharp-eyed phone buddies noticed that President Obama’s plan for high-speed train links throughout the States also includes a couple of stops north of the border. One of them is, you guessed, the Terminal Lotus City itself, Vancouver. The link is here.
That would be pretty exciting for those of us who like to travel down the West Coast regularly and desire to spend something less than a lifetime getting there. (My son recently travelled down to Los Angeles to visit friends and it was a 40-hour trip, including a half hour of grilling and Googling from a suspicious security guard who thought he might be on his way to put on an unauthorized art show.) I know I would take the train if it weren’t geared entirely to day trips for people coming up from Seattle.
