This week an email arrived in my inbox with the news that Mark Critch would be at the Maple Leaf Pub here in London talking to ex-pats for This Hour Has 22 Minutes. I had planned on staying in after 3 very hectic weeks but my curiosity got the best of me and I decided to head down and check it out.
And I’m glad I did. It was a great night, such a lot of fun. I got chatting with some fellow ex-pats, and somehow ended up in front of the camera talking, and singing the national anthem! eek! I hope for the sake of my fellow Canadians you are never subjected to any of this footage! As my friends know I don’t usually sing in public (and for good reason) but I was feeling oh so patriotic.
The photo above is myself, Mark Critch, Cynthia a fellow Canadian ex-pat and the crew from This Hour Has 22 minutes. They were a great bunch, when I left they were in good hands being taken on Camden to further experience London night life. They have a busy itinerary taking them north to Manchester, then on to Ireland, so keep an eye open for them.
Those I was hanging out with last night are part of a great Canadian Ex-pat Meetup.com group, it meets once a month at the Maple Leaf Pub in Covent Garden as well as other events through out the year like picnics and ice skating. It’s a great way to get in touch with your Canadian roots and meet great new people. I am looking forward to the meet up tomorrow and seeing some new familiar faces.
