WINNIPEG: Friendly People
Everyone here is very nice. I notice that even waiting for elevators people make a bit more small talk. Of course it turns out there is an underside. All that forced friendliness causes a little more aggressiveness on the road. If you need to merge into a lane and put on your blinker than in all liklihood the car you'd merge in front of will speed up to close up the gap. In all the cities we've visited, Los Angeles, New York, Singapore and Winnipeg all these placed have aggressive drivers and road rage. I guess its just must easier to be hostile to someone when it isn't face to face.
