I have been Canada for 1 day now. I am working here Monday-Friday. I spent most of today walking around Ottawa, taking photos and visiting the local museum.
The flight over was fairly painful. About 20 hours of flight time. Close to 30 when you include transit times. I flew Melbourne to LA, which was late and made me miss my connecting flight. I was supposed to then fly LA-Chicago-Ottawa, but I ended up flying LA-Montreal-Ottawa. Montreal to Ottawa was only a 28 minute flight and was on a Dash-8.. a small 30 seater prop plane, which was interesting.
I didn’t realise that French was so prominent over here. I tried to speak to a Canadian woman who was sitting next to me on the plane.. and she didn’t speak English. Everything is duplicated in both English and French.. Signs, Building names, the text at the museum.
Here are some photos from my trip so far..
