Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. NOT!


Again, it's a crisp morning with fresh snow on the ground, and I am once again confined indoors, since I don't have the appropriate riding skills and heating equipment for this kind of weather. I honestly admire and envy those riders (male or female) who manage those adverse weather conditions; and I wish I was as skilled and as brave enough to do it. But I am not going to test my luck on a two wheeler in worst driver's capital Calgary, where cagers under normal conditions are a dangerous species, let alone cagers driving on slippery roads.

Nevertheless, this time-out is an opportunity to get my ducks in the row and file the application for Canadian Citizenship. It has been four and a half years since I have been invited to this wonderful country as a permanent resident in the skilled worker category, and I feel that this is the right step towards integration. I also hope that this might eventually increase my future career opportunities, since permanent residents sometimes (due to security clearance, or preference of citizens) do only have limited access to the job market.

    The purpose of the Rockies is to keep all the ice and snow on your side where it belongs.

    good for applying for Canadian citizenship. It may open more doors, esp for Government positions, and perhaps a move to Victoria where you can ride nearly all year long

    You must be a mind reader ;-)
