Hilaire Belloc: I visited here around 1890. I detested the food here, and even decades later would call it the worst cooking that I had ever come across, anywhere in the world.
Rudyard Kipling: I traveled here in 1889, during a world tour of sorts through North America.
Viggo Mortensen: I traveled here in 1990, to film scenes of The Indian Runner, playing a troubled veteran. Funnily enough, I had just finished filming another film in which I played another troubled war veteran.
