Take a bow...or a stern: The European Union team celebrates a win on June 21 at the Embassies and Foreign Missions Challenge Cup, during Ottawa’s Dragon Boat Festival. This was the first time the European team, made up of EU Delegation and individual embassy representatives as well as European expats and Canadians, participated in the event. They competed against the fearsome Nord-zilla, made up of members of the Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish and Latvian embassies, as well as the alumni group for the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme, and an Ottawa Chinese students group.
