Canadian Science - TRIUMF cyclotron
So, I was visiting Vancouver BC, having already visited Vancouver Island and Vancouver WA at various points in the past. Checking Nerdy Day Trips for interestingly off-beat destinations, I spotted the TRIUMF cyclotron did free tours for the public. Most importantly, photography allowed.

So, after finding a willing victim, sorry, volunteer to go with me (my dad seems quite accepting of the strange places I find), we braved radioactivity, strong magnetic fields and driverless trains (the latter in the public transport system).

Canada, land of the future!

(Coming soon: a radio observatory. A bit smaller than Jodrell Bank, but much more Canadian...)
