"Kingston, where I went to grad school" Kingston by rwlittle

I went to grad school in Kingston, at Queen's University, to get my Master's degree in physics. Kingston used to be the capital of Canada, back in the old colonial days, so there are some historical sights to see. I would encourage a visit in the summertime; winters can be bitterly cold, and snowy.
For the first two years I lived in Kingston, I stayed in a basement apartment. You can see the door to the apartment open in the photo. All winter long, I had the plug-in electrical heaters running full blast, to keep the place warm.
It was a bit of a culture shock for me, moving out to Kingston. It took me a while to settle in, make friends, and adjust to the temperature and snow. I do look back on these days fondly though. My thesis project was successful, and led me to the career I have today.
