A new friend

It’s my very first day on board VIA Rail’s The Canadian train, and I have already met a friend. Souvenir Bear is a northern black bear that has given up life in the forest to ride the rails, working for VIA as a travel ambassador. He commented that my sweater was weather appropriate and quite liked the maple leaf design. We had a good chat about the trip, and we hope to meet for snacks at least once more during the trip.
