I know I was a little shell-shocked when I arrived in early February.
For someone who has never seen snow before, rocking up in -14 was pretty rude of you, despite everyone assuring me that this was a really ‘mild’ winter for Ottawa.
Personally, I like seeing my taxes on a price tag than having to work it out in my head, and I’m not crash-hot on your tipping culture. I’m still a little bewildered by your fervent obsession with ‘All Dressed’ chips. And the whole milk-in-a-bag thing. Oh, and that you have a 60* temperature swing between winter and summer! Come on.
But having lived here for the past 11 months, there are just so many things I love about you.
