I actually arrived at
Toronto airport, Ontario on 1st June at 10:15pm and was met by Scott
Maitland who I would be staying with for my first week. As I left
Kimberley and headed to Calgary to catch my flight I took just a few photo
which I'll show you here.
This is another Billy who I am told is the
Piper that plays for Princess Anne any time she is in Canada. And this is
Billy's shop in Calgary which has a magnificent view over the city
And so now it was onto the
plane to Toronto and Guelph...
This is the building in which Scott works at
And here is Scott Maitland who is looking
after me while I am in Guelph
Today was really a settling
in day. I got to meet Scot's wife, Janine and their wee nine month old son
Alexander. Got settled into their home and next day went to Guelph University
to get orientated. The Library there have very kindly provided me with a
room to work in which includes full internet access. My first job once
settled in was do my email which turned out to be the last time I could do
that for some 50 hours!!!!!
Down in Kentucky they had a
big storm which brought down a muckle big tree which in turn took down
power lines and phone lines. It took Steve some 24 hours to get the power
back but it was to be 50 hours before we got the phone lines back. So if
you can imagine it. There was I up in Canada not being able to get
to my web site, not being able to send or receive email and on top of all
that finding when I phoned Steve to find out what happened I couldn't get
through! So all in all a really weird time.
So that was my arrival in
Guelph... it was going to get better as you'll see :-)
