I can’t believe it’s November already! Red coffee cups, snowfall warnings, and mittens are here, but I’m looking forward to something else this month. Remembrance Day (aka 11/11) is a really big deal here in Canada’s capital city and I’m excited to witness the ceremonies in person. Yesterday, my co-worker and I took the bus to a graveyard in Vanier where all the military tomb stones are. It was a sobering reminder of our turbulent history. It’s also unbelievable how patriotic I have become since arriving in Ottawa.
Three cheers for peace, order, and good government!
