I now have a Canadian bank account. Getting one was an interesting experience. The CFO of Slant Six had set up a meeting with an account manager from Royal Bank of Canada. They really welcome you with open arms, and take all the time in the world to get to know the new client. I was also introduced to the bank manager. She invited me for their "Client Appreciation Day Party". Whoa... what a difference with the lousy treatment by Dutch banks. I now also have a checkbook, which I need to get used to. Writing and cashing-in checks is something I only know from American television. I need to find permanent housing. On craigslist.com I found this one that I may like. I think I will go check out that neighborhood with my bicycle.
