It was dd Convocation on Thursday, where she received her Master of Information Studies degree at the University of Toronto. Here she is being congratulated by the Chancellor David Peterson.
For privacy reasons, I won't be showing her face.......
The person getting the Honorary Degree was MOYEZ VASSANJI, he's a writer and has received numerous awards. I personally have never heard of him but his book "The In-Between World of Vickram Lall" sounds pretty interesting.
The Convocation Hall where the ceremony was held was a beautiful building, that was built between 1904 and 1907. My photo does not do it justice.
As convocation's go it was a pretty standard one. The only difference being there was a wider age group receiving their degrees, as not only were people receiving degrees in Masters, but also Doctorates. A first for me though, was there were two women receiving Doctor of Philosophy degrees, and they were sitting breast feeding during the ceremony. I can't imagine writing papers, and studying while being pregnant, and giving birth and looking after a baby?
It was a lovely ceremony though and after the ceremony we went out for dinner. We took the subway back home to dd and drove home from there. I must admit it was strange to be amongst all the traffic and people. Plus it was strange not to be in jogging pants and running shoes!! We got home around 8pm, and I was pooped. I do have a lot more photos that I will share with you over the coming days.
Today (Friday) is going to be a busy day, I will share with you tomorrow what we are up to.......
