Canadian cuisine is hardly original. In gastronomic terms, Canadians do not shine with imagination. When asked what to try in Canada, french fries, burgers and donuts come to mind. However, something unique in this regard, the founders of hockey still have. Each province has its own traditional dish. Quebec is famous for ice cream, which consists of snow and maple syrup, and rural residents collect and harvest young fern shoots. But let’s talk about everything in order: consider the basic culinary preferences of Canadians. Continue reading

To the village, to the aunt, to the wilderness, to Canada

When I was looking for housing, I was unpleasantly surprised by the lack of hotels in Vancouver with the required configuration – there were no triple rooms for a reasonable price, therefore I resorted to airbnb.com, where I almost immediately found a good option. And there, in the house of a certain “free artist” Dave, we headed in the morning after leaving the hospitable cruise ship.
The first question is about Vancouver: from the windows of the taxi I noticed that along many streets there are not 2 lines of trolleybus wires (round trip), but as many as 4, however, they do not intersect with each other. For what? So that trolleybuses can overtake each other? Stupid … Most likely, the lines are stretched by competing trolleybus fleets, which could not share the costs of laying them?
Dave arrived at around 11 a.m. Quiet green district, perhaps some Sikh temple nearby does not fit into the picture. Surprisingly, the door of the house was open, we entered … So. Kitchen … Bedroom … Continue reading

Travel to Canada (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Niagara Falls

At the end of October, a very short trip to Canada took place (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Niagara Falls).
The flight of 9.5 hours by airbus was easily transferred. This is not 19, as flew through Amsterdam to Bali! TV, books, and now, he is an unfamiliar airport. The plane filled out customs declarations. A sample of filling (in English and Russian!) Was in the back of a chair in a magazine. Standard questions – where, why, for how long, and the condition for importing foreign currency – an amount over 10,000 Canadian dollars must be declared. Border guards, customs – hard. We were warned that even with a visa, you can’t get into the country, everything will depend on the border guard, he can shorten his stay, and may even consider visiting the country inappropriate (?!).
