“Canadians? Y’all look just like Americans!”

Does this look like a Canadian to you?


The title of this post is a quote from the woman working at Heritage Boots on South Congress (a popular shopping area in Austin, south of the river).
She was telling us how she has met so many Canadians in the past few weeks and that for some shocking reason, they looked just like Americans.
Which really makes me wonder…what do they think people from Canada look like!?

In Austin you can order food and drinks at the movies.
