Day one and the start of two, in Ontario

My flight arrived early yesterday, we landed about 30 minutes ahead of schedule – nice, and sort of unexpected.  It was a fairly uneventful flight.  The crying baby behind me soon fell asleep and the other children on the plane didn’t make a sound.  I really didn’t expect them to – we left at 12:30 in the morning, they fell asleep pretty quickly, I am sure.

I wasn’t so lucky, no sleep at all.  Oh well.

After landing, I didn’t have to wait for luggage or anything since I didn’t check any, I was right outside and waiting for the express bus to Kipling subway station.  It was hot and humid yesterday morning, something that I am really not used to any longer.  The bus ride to the subway station was quick and traffic at 6:15am was light.

I was surprised that the subway was not busy, at all.  I was able to get a seat on both trains (I had to switch to a different line).  I had a short walk to the office and was almost immediately let in.  I saw a co-worker who showed me where the coffee was – much needed after not sleeping all night.

It was good visiting with co-workers that I had not seen in almost two years.  I met a couple that I had only previously spoken to on the phone or emailed as well.  My bus for St. Catharines was leaving Toronto at 10:30, so I left around 9:30.

I walked over to Union Station, not knowing that MegaBus and other inter-city buses don’t leave from there.  I suppose that I should have looked at my ticket…  I had a 2km walk to the bus station and only 20 some odd minutes to make the walk – I didn’t think I was going to get there in time, but I did, with a bit to spare.  The ride back to St. Catharines was quick and the highway traffic was light.

I went out to lunch with a friend to one of the best, if not the best, Mexican restaurants ever.  I have not found anything in Calgary to compare.  In the afternoon, I had a much needed nap.  We had dinner out, nothing special and then I went for coffee with a friend.  I slept like the dead, not surprised at that.  I am not sure when the last time I pulled an all nighter, but is has been ages.

Today, it is the Mandarin (Chinese buffet) at lunch.  I am looking forward to that for sure.  I might also check out the new outlet mall on the border of Niagara on the Lake and St. Catharines.  There are a few new developments around since I was last here.

I am getting hungry for lunch already.  Enjoy your day.
