I just got to the Parliement Hill and was walking around when suddenly METRIC was coming in the opposite direction. I got paralyzed for a second and then thought “ok it’s now or never, this is not going to happen again” and went to talk to them. I was shaking and stuttering because it was SO UNREAL, I barely remember what I said. Everyone was so nice - and Emily Haines, the NICEST. I was introducing myself and then she came and said “HEEEEEY! Nice to meet you!” and gave me the most effusive handshake I ever got.
then I asked to take a pic (“SURE!!”). and now my face is hurting because I’ve been smiling nonstop for almost 10h.
this country/this trip/LIFE is fucking unbelievable.
(btw Joules is even more handsome in person <3 )
(and the tradition of Emily-never-is-where-I-am is definitively BROKEN! :D )
