I am thankful to live just about three hours drive away from one of my favorite Canadians: Alida. I met Alida in Europe and we have been on some crazy adventures together since then across the globe. She is one of the wisest humans I know who has a heart for advocacy and justice. Not only that, but she has one of the most sincere, generous and creative hearts around. I was able to come visit her a few weeks ago and she showed me around her beautiful city!
