    ... for quite a while before going our separate ways. While at the bar I also met an ex-pat Canadian who worked for Helsinki University, polishing the English for Finnish scholars publishing in the English language. His name is John and he grew up in Montreal. He has been working for the university for 20 years.

    Ready for my first meal of the day despite the fact that it was almost 8 p.m., I walked to a restaurant near my hotel called Manala ...
