OCT 16, 2015 – On my way to Toronto, I stopped for a few hours in Kingston ON, where I had lived for five months in 2010-11 and done an internship at CMC Microsystems. My former boss gave me a tour of the offices, where I met many familiar faces and some new ones. CMC has since built a new prototyping lab, which I got introduced to as well. The city itself still looked much the same – the most notable difference being a new microbrewery called Stone City Ales on the main street. After tasting all their draft beers, I concluded that the 12 Star Session Ale was my favorite, but I liked Beau’s Kissmeyer Nordic Pale Ale even more (this was on their guest tap). Further down the street, the cinema had closed its doors and apparently a large building with expensive condos will replace it.
