FAQ of the week

i think i have been asked for more than 10 times this week...
and have been getting the same response everytime

'HiuKei, why aren't you back for Olympics?!?!'

'hmm...' (smile) 'I want to but it's far...'

'Isn't it in Canada?'

'Yes...it's in Canada but Montreal is far from Vancouver...'

'How far?'

'It takes about 6 hrs...'

'By car?'

'No...by flight'

'WHAT?!?! 6 hrs flight?!? 3 hrs time differences??WOW!!!!!! How does that work?'

'... ...'

the concept of how big Canada is sometimes just doesn't seem to be comprehended by the japanese
