Growing zone of familiarity


in Canada, Daily updates, Ottawa

Marc Gurstein and Ashley Thorvaldson

I am beginning to get me bearings in Ottawa, having met up with Ashley and Marc, acquired a new mobile phone, and started to learn critical geography and restaurant locations. Somehow, being reunited with former fellow debaters in this town feels very appropriate.

Judging by where Marc is living, it seems quite possible to find a really good place to live near the centre of town for the general amount of money I should be able to spend. The idea of having a place of my own is an exciting one, even if it may be for only a year.

Monday morning, I start work at Environment Canada.

I am glad that some of your friends are already in Ottawa. I was not aware that Marc was there. Please say hello to both him and Ashley from myself.

Best of luck with your first day of work!

Regarding your query: the blog asks for an email address when you comment as one of many means by which spam is filtered. Since I set up the most recent system, it has blocked more than 12,800 attempts. Deleting that many spam comments manually would probably have taken days.

bon chance! It’s nice to hear your happily in Ottawa. I’d love to be there to hang out with you and Ashley – imagine, two people I miss at once! I suppose I’ll just have to make it out one of these days.
