It's my first trip to Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, and I have to say, I'm impressed. The hotel district is right in the heart of the city, meaning many interesting sites are within walking distance. The neighbourhood is populated with museums, towering buildings, and public art installations.
The highlight of Day 1 had to be meeting and dining with staff members and other co-learners at Fogo de Chao, where flipping your serving card to green, invited 'gauchos' to blade hot servings onto our plates. The conversation was intimate, familiar, and open; more evidence that the relationships we build online, are much more than virtual.
Today, over 500 attendees, including many from southern Ontario, will be networking at the Science Leadership Academy. It's Educon 2.2, and another day of learning; wish you were here!
