I landed in Winnipeg early this morning, about 10 hours after I was supposed to thanks to issues with United Airlines [groan]. As you may have seen in my tweets yesterday, United was canceling, rescheduling and even booting people off of flights left and right! One flight was supposed to seat 50 passengers, but the gate agents made an announcement saying they could only take 22!
So, as you can imagine, I was happy to have finally touched down in Canada, though it was the next day and I had only had 3hrs of sleep the night before!
Because I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked (none at all, actually), to check out the town and figure out the bus route to my internship, I called a cab.
$20CAN later and I arrived at the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network office in downtown Winnipeg.
Thus far things have been great! Everyone is beyond friendly and equally excited about my being here (especially when they hear from my supervisor that I turned down 4 summer internship offers from CNN to work here…how did she find that out?!), which is nice.
I’m looking forward to giving you more updates and content as the summer goes on. Keep checking back…or just subscribe!
