MissZooropa's Canadian voyage....

Well, we had a great time but I had to drop Sara off at the airport today, very sad, although we'll see each other again in a little over a month (yay!)
Anyway, this was Sara's 2nd time to Canada, I'm sorry it wasn't as exciting as the last time (Not a whole lot can compare to 4 U2 concerts, right?) but we had a great time and I got to see Nova Scotia and New Brunswick; I'd never been there before.
Anyway, among other things, we found Springhill on the map and decided to make a U2-related pilgrimmage-- we actually took a tour of one of the old mines, for the sole purpose of posting these awful pics... LOL...




Miss Zooropa by the sign...


and me...


And I also have to post a pic from our Montreal gathering last night, thanks to the wonderful planning skills of Lady Lemonade. :-) Anyway, the total turnout included 5 PLEBAns -- lady lemonade, her friend (I'm sorry, totally blanked on her name), MissZooropa, Naya, madamc, and of course me.... My friend Dave was there as well (he took the picture); I'd call him an honorary PLEBAn although I don't know if he'd admit to surfing this part of interference. (We know you're out there, Dave :-) )

BTW, as for Springhill, there was an explosion in one of the mines in the late 1950s; a song was written about the disaster, called Springhill Mining Disaster, which U2 covered in the 80s. Hence our reason for visiting the mine.... :-)

U2 sang a song, I believe at the Chicago show on the Joshua Tree tour, called "Springhill Mining Disaster". I used to have the words and they are beautiful. They were actually written by a folk singer but I can't remember her name at the moment !

Anyway, I thought the mining disaster took place in England, am I wrong here? Where were these pics taken?

Thanks for sharing your pics!

Cool pics. Gah I want a PLEBA meeting in England so I can go.
The song Springhill Mining Disaster is a beautiful song, but not about England. The first line is 'in the town of Springhill, Nova Scotia'
Maybe you're thinking of the miners strike, that was in England.
