Oh Canada!

Wow, it has been quite a week! I left Maine on friday, stopping by Bowdoin to meet my new PhD student, then to Kate's ready for the drive up to Ottawa. I spent most of Saturday sleeping, i'm totally exhausted and needed it desperately, it's been a whirlwind month, and a super long and stressful week of interviewing. I'll fill you in on how that went later, today i'm too tired!

Today we drove to Ottawa, and it's been a glorious day. I've loved catching up with Kate, and we got here around 4pm, just in time to have a short wander, eat some food, have a gin and tonic, and now we're hanging out watching TV before bed. Tomorrow i'm headed to the embassy at 8am, and our other friend Cheryl is arriving for 4 days of Can-eh-dian fun! Hopefully by midday it'll just be sit and wait for my passport to come back to me.

Parliament square.

It's tulip festival time!

So jealous that you get to hang out with Kate and Cheryl. Say hi to everyone for me. Wish I could be having some canadian fun too... I think I'm at the point when they no longer allow you on the airplane without a doctor's note though. :-(
