Last week we were fortunate to give a talk at HPX Digital Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I barely made it on time there landing 3 hours before the talk thanks to the "greatest" United airline. Apparently it is normal in the US to sell more tickets the plane can actually carry. Purchasing tickets 3 months in advance and 3-hour-before-the-flight check-in at the airport does not guarantee you the seat on the plane. So I didn't make the flight before the day of the talk ending back at home in Brooklyn and taking a flight the day after; rushing into a conference straight from the airpot.
Halifax is a little cute town in Nova Scotia, Canada on the coast of Atlantic ocean. One cool thing you need to know about this place is a "Halifax Explosion". In 1917 a fully loaded with wartime explosives French cargo ship collided with Norwegian vessel in Halifax harbour. An entire town was leveled up. The blast was the largest man-made explosion prior to the development of nuclear weapon (approx. 2.9 kilotons of TNT).
So Halifax and Dartmouth across the bridge are fairly new towns. I didn't have much time there and took a walk on Sunday before the sunrise around the place. All photos were taken with Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens.
