worldly wednesday :: Canada
I was fearing this one ever so slightly. After a friend talked about the wonders of Poutine a while back... Chips with fried cheese curds and gravy. Traditional French Canadian fare. A signature dish. Gulp. When our random number generator selected Canada as our country of the week, we weren't quite sure what we'd get up to. It seemed that the lifestyle there isn't too dissimilar from our own. Aside from Poutine. And bears.
Actually Huz's Poutine was quite yummy. And once we'd overcome that hurdle, we relaxed into an evening of listening to our favourite music... The vast majority of our music collection is Canadian, so it felt just like a regular Saturday night. Then we watched some Anne of Green Gables and Degrassi... And thanks to the internet, took a little journey into Inuit territory and the lives of indigenous Canadians. And we discovered there was plenty to talk about.
Then a plate of waffles with maple syrup, a look at the flag and the landscape and we were ready for a bedtime story. A pleasant trip in a busy week and we may just come back again some day. After a piece of fruit.
