I am in Canada. I have never been to Canada before. It is crazy, I know. I have been in Canada less than 24 hours, and I am already loving it.
I learned that Canada is in fact, a foreign country. Which means, yes, you do need your passport to enter the country. It was a whirlwind trip from Tulsa, Oklahoma, to Ottawa, Canada.
Upon entering the beautiful green country, I was instantly greeted with a bit of French flair. Je vous parlez francais? Oui!
A long black car came to pick me up from the airport. You better believe it, I am not in Oklahoma anymore.
We were immediately whisked away by a retired Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman, to our host house, and on to a great Irish pub in downtown Ottawa with friends and a place where the waiters know their orders. Wow. I was loving Canada already. J’adore. Life is good here in Canada, and I am happy to be here training for a couple of days before the UCI race, the Grande Visite Gatineau.
