The border

This is such a powerful symbol - both flags flying high

At the border

The official symbolic divider I think

I wasn't aware that the Canadian numbers have a +1 prefix similar to the U.S numbers. I exclaimed that out in surprise and B.T told me that the Americans and Canadians are really friendly with each other actually. They like to have friendly competition with one another but both countries are on good terms with each other as evidently shown at the border.

Outlet shopping

You have to look out for this sign along the highway

At Woodburn

One thing fantastic about shopping in the U.S is the outlet options. For those travelling to Portland or Seattle, you can check out these -

::::: Seattle - Premium brands galore. I would still vote the NYC Woodbury the Mecca of factory outlets, but Seattle Premium Outlets does house a few good brands. Examples include Juicy Couture, Burberry, Kate Spade, Coach, BCBG, DKNY, Hugo Boss, Jones New York, Kenneth Cole, Nine West, True Religion etc.

::::: Woodburn - More mid-level brands here. Banana Republic, Gap, Calvin Klein, Coach, Converse and kids brands like Gap, Osh Kosh, Carter's.
