Frostbite in Madrid

We flew to Munich and the urinals
had a fly painted on them, to avoid
splashback. Then we landed in Madrid.
She had broken her arm falling off
her bicycle, waving to the Korean
fruit vendor. We froze the ice pack
and slipped it into her sling. She
didnt notice it in the heat. She
must be the only person in Spain
to suffer frostbite.

Perhaps you should change a phrase in the line
"Journey with author Michael Winter as he travels Canada reading from his brand new novel, The Big Why."
to
"travels the world"
-- Madrid and Australia not actually being part of Canada.
Come to think of it, perhaps "brand new" should be changed to "most recent, highly acclaimed".
The rest looks good - unless you want to change the photo to one in which you're eating Ontario corn as you look out at Bell's Island or Bay of Islands or some such.
Oh, you were just asking about punctuation?
Sorry.
Never mind.
