Here goes again! Hi there - I've just moved back to Ottawa after an overseas job for the last couple of years. Re-adjusting and waiting for the interminable winter to end (I hope that reference gets outdated fast!). As for me, well, I'm well travelled, including a few places not exactly on the main tourist routes. I know lots of obscure facts about places most people can't find on a map, I know the best wine to have with asparagus, I can ride an elephant, own several obscure musical instruments, know where to find good donkey burgers and have a host of other skills that are pretty much useless for Canadian life. Would love to have some help getting re-acquainted with Ottawa and environs. Walks on the river, hikes in the Gatineaus, anything propelled by paddle are big pluses...Hope to hear from you soon.
Addendum I missed last time! - my "died and gone to heaven" date would be someone who wants to learn Latin or swing...or who would have the patience to hang around through my learning curve. I do actually have both a left and a right foot and am probably trainable.
