I arrived in Ottawa at 10:00 am today, and wow, was I ever tired. I feel bad for Ignacio and Alicia, as I kept falling asleep in their presence (not to mention annoying airplane staff because I wouldn’t get off the plane during a stop-over in Toronto).
The 3 of us went out to see some varsity soccer games (Carleton Ravens vs. U of T Varsity Blues), both Men’s and Women’s. The Raven’s won both games, even playing the last 20 minutes in full rain. I realized that this was the first time I’d ever seen a ‘professional’ soccer game, despite growing up in South America. Weird!
Other highlights of the day: being thwarted by the public transit system in numerous ways, and having streets decline your request to cross streets on Sundays. How rude.
I didn’t really take any photos today, so please be patient!
But in other news….
