Photos (from left to right): Winterlude on the Canal, Ice Sculptures in a nearby park.

Finally uploaded some photos. Met more Linux people in the area, had food, did stuff. Tonight I hope to meet up with Mark Lord for some late night geocaching (but he asked for my shoesize so I guess there might be more to it than I think…). ajh agreed to come with us to Toronto and Boston so I think we now have three going down by car.

I went to the NAC (National Arts Centre) last night. Wow. Pinchas Zuerman lead the performance of an evening of Beethoven, but Yuja Wang really stole the whole show – this pianist is absolutely amazingly brilliant, and also only 17 years old. Quite apart from her youth, she’s probably the best pianist I have ever seen in any context.

Ended up in The Bulldog Pub, a cheesy bar-cum-club, for GGW. It was snowing lightly as I headed back afterwards.
