The aftermath of Canada Day!

My favourite holiday of the year has come and gone, and once again, was an incredible day! I started out by playing some early-morning soccer with new TESOL friends, then met up with other friends to go and explore the downtown core. It was packed, as per usual, covered, wall-to-wall, with our proudest red and white. There were also hilarious people wearing bright red morph suits to add to the awesomeness. We saw about 45 minutes of Tiesto’s set (oh, how I wish we could’ve stayed longer), danced around like maniacs, grabbed drinks at the Hard Rock (we’ve got the hookups, yo), watched the yearly Top of the World skate & BMX demo, and witnessed a sweet, sweet rap battle.

Rideau Street is aaaawesome.

Bam, downtown.


There is no shortage of activities in the nation’s capital on a day this important; you’d be hard-pressed to find yourself bored! The best part had to be the fireworks, though. Since the visiting royalty (ehhhh) was in town specifically for our nation’s birthday, the city put a little bit of extra effort, and that led to an amazing fireworks display later in the evening. The only thing that was a bit off-putting was the soundtrack playing at Major’s Hill. I think they wanted to set a sort of mystical, earthy tone, but it really just succeeded at boring us to tears/driving people to ritual suicide. Anyway. The band playing prior to the fireworks was a lot of fun, and introduced the spectacle really well, I found; it was really dancey, upbeat electronic…something-or-other. Haaa. Listen and enjoy!

In any case, I had a great time!

Also: 12 days til takeoff!

Bis später!

    Sad I missed Canada Day on the hill! Then again, meeting Bobby at the Maple Leaf was pretty amazing. Will of course tell you more later.
