I probably would have left my suitcase at the border to make room in the car :D
Which shul is accepting travelers? Asking for a friend.
Great question.

 Working on that now..

 I heard some take you after 7 days!

Didnít see this, hope you found. The one near me is accepting after 5 days + negative test. The one I go to is not even letting out of province for 14 days or people hosting out of province.

Ending up going to a backyard tent minyon, was very nice!
 Other than the few days which it was quite cold it was beautiful.

   Could have went to chevra Shas or Babov.

 But to be on the safe side with the rest of my relatives and family who didn't get Covid, played it smart and stayed away from packed and jammed minyanim.
Wore a mask and outdoors.

Insane prices.

 90% off all edibles and beer and booze is insane.

Can you clarify "edibles"?

+1 @myi ?
From the US to CAD.
 The duty free which is between the Candian and US border was closed.

From Chocolate, Candy, pretzels, beer and everything in between.
   They were so happy to see new customers.
  They said the only people who have been coming into the shop for the past few month's were mainly Truck drivers.

 For anyone looking to cross the border and your not a citizen, you would have a much easier time flying.

I once saw huge discounts on cigars. About $1 for 15 instead of $50-60

Some of the tobacco products were on sale as well.

Was a bit more alive than 6 months ago.

  Though random stuff were on sale, from some cigars, cigarettes, candy, and random items.

 The booze and beer were ok priced, but no crazy sales this time around.

 The BP agent did mention he doesn't really have a time frame when the border would be back up and open to the public, thought he said from the inside hock he's hearing they say about mid to late September.(who knows!?)..

  Was a breeze to cross but I'm hearing I waisted my time doing the covod test at the border, as 98% of the people who cross keep the covod kits as a souvenir versus actually doing it.
  Though I ended up doing it took me around a half hour till I created an account for the healthcare and followed all the instructions.. swabbing ourselves and filling all the labels and paperwork needed to be done..
 And for those under 18  we had to do for them. Let me tell you shear stupidity.
 The night before I got myself a PCR from the doctor's office then the next day they're making me do a swab covid test.
  Most ironic part was needing to take an alcohol pad and wiping down the outside of the bag before giving it to them.
  Oh and they need you to blow your nose then purel your hands, but to use their pens to fill out the info is fine. LoL

 Place is crazy...

Here's some pics..

 






















Also here's another funny picture.
  I went into Dollarama to pick up some items, little did I know that only select items you can purchase.
  But here in Canada a toilet plunger is not essential sorry you cannot purchase it here... Welcome to Canada!








And at least one beautiful Picture.. Ma rabu ma'asecha Hashem!
