I haven’t been great about updating this, but life gets in the way. I’ve been settling in here in Ottawa and things are going well. On the personal front, I’ve found an apartment, gotten my household effects from Mexico, found some furniture, and so on. I’ve still got a lot of unpacking to do, but it’s easier to unpack your clothes when you have a dresser to unpack them in to.
On the work front, I’m getting a little more used to my work, am learning about the topics I’m covering, and learning how the embassy works. I worked with a Canadian organization and within the embassy to plan and host an event which, while stressful, was a really good experience and helped me learn a lot more about which office does what, what the embassy can and cannot do, etc. So, slowly but surely getting my feet under me.
And now, some more pictures!
