My parents and I drove out to Allan today, just for something different to do. It was kind of dead, which is probably not surprising for noon on a Saturday. We had lunch in the local Chinese restaurant. Allan doesn't have the same kind of vibrancy as places like Martensville and Warman do, although they're obviously trying to go in that direction. But it's a boomtown compared to the nearby village of Elstow, which we also drove through. Elstow looks pretty sad and worn out, and it wouldn't surprise me if a decade or so from now it's effectively gone.
