More On My Trip To Edmontonia
So today was a full-day of workshopping, which was jammed packed with information and so my brain is very full! I had to give a short presentation on my project, which seems to have been well-received – so that was good.
After the workshopping, I went for a walk with my colleague, Katie, who is attending this workshop with me and who also happens to be from Edmonton. She showed me the Parliament building and the river valley – much prettier than the view from my hotel room. The hotel we are staying at does free wine & cheese tastings in the evening, so of course we went to that. Then we went off in search of dinner, but the couple of places we checked out either didn’t have anything we wanted to eat, were kind of crappy inside, or were crazily priced, so we ended up just going to the hotel restaurant, where we had some delicious wild mushroom ravioli with asparagus!
But even better than that was the free wine and cheese we got because the hotel was overbooked and when Katie tried to check in yesterday, they had no room for her. So they put her up in a sister hotel down the street yesterday and today put her into a fancy pants upgraded suite and gave her a bottle of wine and a delicious plate of cheese:
And lucky me, I got to enjoy said bottle of wine and said plate of cheese with Katie, and I wasn’t even inconvenienced with an overbooked room!
But now it’s late and I need to get to bed for another full day of workshopping tomorrow!
