Nadege was great, I definitely recommend a visit if you're in Toronto. A little fancy, but worth it!

On a particularly rainy day I had much time to kill.
The warm smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut, vanilla and other delicious flavours
beckoned and welcomed.
The Tea Shop.
It was a good decision.
I went up to Ottawa for the Animation Film Festival. It was a lot of fun, volunteering, good screenings, not so good screenings (that others seemed to enjoy nonetheless!) , inspiring talks and many chilly walks- to the various venues, and also to Quebec (by accident). I ate a delicious sandwich in the rain, and another well prepared one ( courtesy my aunt and fantastic Indian pickle) in the soothing, warming sun. I skipped out on the late night events and exciting animator parties, but got to spend some time with family and my cousin's delightful little children- cheerful, intelligent, and boiling over with energy!

We lost our way in a park, panicked and called 911. In our defense, it spreads over 600 acres, and even the rangers had trouble locating us. We would have been stranded among unknown grass and horse droppings much longer, if it wasn't for the geese flying towards the setting sun.
It was probably a little much to expect a helicopter to come rescue us, but the nice park rangers gave us a ride back through the rocky roads of Farmdale Reservoir on the back of one of these!

We went to a Zoo, the tiger slept out in the sun, and the lemurs played in the shade. The Africa section had groovy African music playing in the background, drum beats and chants; I wonder if the animals were bothered by these sounds. The petting section with ponies and donkeys being petted by us more "evolved" monkeys. Some animals in pairs, some by themselves, running around, chasing each other, or just lazily lying about. I got the impression the animals were bored, and possibly intrigued by how excited we all were, wearing our caps and eating ice cream.
