The more things change, the more they remain the same. The CNE isn’t what it used to be, so I’m told. There is no free ride and I paid 7 Dollalhares for a hotdog…yes, a hot dog (more on that later). The bearded lady is gone….or is she? Maybe she just went to the the Shoppers Bazaar in Building A just right of the Prince’s Gates and got herself a honey ginger hair removal system and now she walks among us, flying her freak flag at half mast. There is still some pretty good people watching (it’s free and see picture above, zoom in wherever) and there is some good things to eat. Take my hotdog: I got it in Building A: a kobe beef weiner (shhh), with wasabi mayo, Japanese curry, and a hovering of deep fried julienned onions smattered on top. Seriously, the best hot dog ever. Seven dollars. And so what? I got a foot massage for a quarter and a pair of Doc Martens for 60 bucks, I am so way ahead. I also had another lunch of a vegetarian Middle East platter from the actual foode court:
