I spent about a year living in Ottawa in the mid 1990s while working for Nortel during my undergraduate degree program. Back then, Ottawa and I didn’t get along well. It was cold, I didn’t have quite the sense of adventure I do now, and it was the first time I lived away from Halifax.
Today I’m sorting through pictures from a four day mixed work/vacation trip to our nation’s capital where I had the chance to explore the city with a fresh set of eyes after all these years. I’ve worked in the city since then, but really only had the chance to see the inside of the airport, cabs, hotels and offices. I’ll be posting more over the next week on the trip. Safe to say… Ottawa and me… we are now back on speaking terms.
