El día se planifica en base a refugiarnos de las horas de más sol en la calle. Como se dice aquí, "el indio está en candela" y nos obliga a hacer vida antes de las 13 pm y después de las 18pm. Por suerte, ahora vivimos al lado de una fondita que por 20 cup nos resuelve el almuerzo y la comida, así que sólo hay que ir a buscar los vegetales en el agro para el chivito catalán, como me llama Acevedo.
Casi siempre la fondita está sirviendo carne de cerdo con arroz y chícharos, pero hoy tocó pescadito ripeado, y se me humedecieron los ojos al probar el primer bocado, pues su sabor me trasladó al sazón de mi abuela paterna❤️
🇨🇦 Ottawa, Canada
Ottawa started as a trade site among the native inhabitants, but the first European settlement arrived only until 1800. It received the rank of city in 1855, when I took its current name. It finally became the capital of Canada in 1857.
Yes, it is a rather new city, and a beautiful one, full with magnificent old-style and new buildings, parks, and a very balanced amount of English and French-speaking people. Both languages are official in Canada, but here you can hear both in the streets, and you see signs in both languages, as opposed to the only-English or only-French that you get to see in Toronto and Quebec, for example.
Ottawa offers a lot of things to do, especially in the arts area, with museums, theaters and galleries; but also many places to enjoy a bite or a drink, like restaurants, cafes and bars. There are also tens of festivals throughout the year that vary from culture, films and music to food and beverage festivals, and the ones dedicated to specific groups of people (Latin, Children’s, Capital Pride) or any other type of thing or event (Tulip, Burlesque, Stone Carving, Winter...). A vibrant but peaceful city that anyone can and will enjoy.
