Happy New... Everything!

Hello, and bonne année from Ottawa!

2013 is off to a rolicking start already, with a new home, in a new city, in a new position.

The journey from Vancouver was pleasant, and I arrived in the winter wonderland that was Ottawa. It was also a nice treat to spend a few days around New Year's in Montreal with friends (who are so very close now culturally and geographically) before hopping back and settling into my new digs here.

Today was about meeting people, shaking hands, and putting names to faces of colleagues in this new space at the IDRC.  Lots of information and learning lots already about the exciting projects being funded by the organization, and specifically what I'll be doing with ACRE (pronounced "AY-KER", as in the unit of measurement)
Exciting times.
