Exchange from Canada

All is going well here. We have just returned from two weeks in British Columbia. Our kids joined us, as well as friends and we had a blast. Now back at school with exams starting in a week then end of the semester. School goes well. I am well into the swing of snow shoe, cross country skiing and skate lessons. Next period I am teaching how to build a snow shelter in outdoor education.

Red Deer is a good place for an exchange. While it is an oil town it it’s big enough to have a cross section of people into hiking and skiing.

I am still riding to school. The coldest day so far was -21. It is dark with sunrise at 8.41 today. Strangely I have not seen anyone else riding to work.

Lots of adventure planned. A week skiing in Fernie and some back country skiing trips, exchange conference ice fishing etc. And I will be ready for some warmth are some stage with plenty of summer holidays planned.

So all is going well. Better go build some snow shelters.

Peter Haynes is on exchange from Radford College in Canberra to Red Deer Alberta.
