Once again, I am travelling because of work. This time it is the other side of North America, I am currently in St John’s Newfoundland.
While Ontario has had a heat wave the weather in St John’s has been cool and foggy. The fog has been almost continuous since I arrived on Sunday and it even caused one aborted attempt at landing when flying in from Ottawa. The conference has been good and in the evening we have visited Kelly’s Bar which has great fish and chips as well as live music. For vegetarian food I recommend the Sprout too, great curry! (Just realized, showing my British origins with my eating habits – fish n’ chips and curry).
The fog lifted a little today and gave an opportunity to see more of the painted ‘jelly bean’ houses that St John’s is famous for.
The conference is now over and I fly back tomorrow afternoon. However, in the morning I plan on visiting Signal Hill the receiver site of Marconi’s first trans-Atlantic radio transmission. I will report on the visit in a later post.
