By the time we got out in the afternoon, there was a heavy thunderstorm. We ran a few errands, including getting a crucial Paradiso Dark coffee from Second Cup! and took a cab to Marilyn Ekelund's place for dinner. She prepared salmon on the BBQ, but we had to eat indoors rather than on her spacious deck. A bonus of re-establishing contact with Marilyn (we interviewed her on our way through Winnipeg on May 8) was to meet her house guest Steve Todd, a Brit who has travelled to 137 countries--and counting. Naturally, we had a fantastic interview with him.
