Our lovely Sarah left us about a month ago to move to France. It’s not too surprising as almost all of our reception staff speaks French (or Spanish). Sarah, of course, speaks French.
We miss her – a lot!
Pretty much everything about our Sarah was good. She had a good nature; good people skills; good language skills; a good sense of humour; and good hair!
We’ve spent the last month looking for a suitable replacement. We finally found one. Her name is Sarah too. (That really is just coincidence!)
Our new Sarah hails from Guelph, Ontario; located about an hour west of Toronto. She is still in the process of moving to an apartment in the city.
She is a graduate of one of Canada’s oldest institutions, McGill University in Montreal (founded 1821). She studied “Women’s Studies” and I suppose McGill is a good place as any to do that. After all, the current Principal of McGill is a woman.
She also brings a second language to the hostel. Hers is (you guessed it!) French!
She plans to be in Toronto for some time to come as she wants to attend the University of Toronto to read law. (Oh well, nobody’s perfect!)
Nonetheless, we all think she is a great addition to the hostel staff! Welcome aboard Sarah. (And all the best to our other Sarah!)
