Today is the day! Twenty years ago for the first time I put my foot on the Canadian soil and since then I've never left Canada. When I'm looking back I see a young woman, a little scared, a little disappointed but with the open mind and heart for the new adventure. So far I have seen most of this beautiful land (except Maritimes - that's my project for the next year), have learned about many cultures and got cured from feeling sorry for the natives. It wasn't always easy, there were times when I was looking for a job, when I just 'survived' between the first and last day of the month but somehow always the next day was better than the previous one. And there were fun times like driving across the country, watching boxing with Jamaicans, buying my first car, being on the 'top of the world', having maple syrup for the first time, and so on. I love Canada, I love the freedom and stability I have here and I am so very proud to be Canadian. Happy 20 anniversary to me!
So long my friends,
