June 27, 2009: Welcome to Nova Scotia

After three different flights and twelve hours flying, my experience in Nova Scotia begins! After landing in Halifax I have my five senses on the alert. At first sight, I have the sensation that it looks very similar to Asturias (Spain): green is the main color in landscape, and the sunny weather today increases the color effects. Perhaps the main and most important difference is that more natural area has been protected from buildings in Halifax. They are so lucky! I have seen hares on the green zone at the motorway edge from the airport to the hotel. After just four hours, I can say that it is very easy to fall in love with Nova Scotia.
