The great thing about coming to another country on an exchange program, as opposed to just visiting as a tourist, is that you get the opportunity to really get to know the people who live here... and we are getting to know some really lovely people during our time here in Canada. We had a dinner invitation tonight to Wendy and Todd's place, and they also invited Beth and Grant, and Jennifer and Peter (although Peter was unable to make it unfortunately). We had an absolutely delightful night, with great food, great wine and great conversation. Donna even told the minitramp story! :-)

Plans were hatched for the boys to get away to Buffalo one weekend for a bit of skiing, while I suspect the girls are making plans for a bit of retail therapy. I don't think I want to know the details!

The kids also had a good time playing in the basement. Canadian basements are just fantastic. I know they are primarily a place for the furnace to live, but they are such a good idea we are wondering why Australian houses don't all have basements too! I think I may have to grab a shovel and start digging when we get home.

Thanks again Todd and Wendy for a lovely night!
