Something hot and spicy to beat the winter blues…

By on December 9, 2013

Just when mother nature was wreaking havoc on our driving conditions and our confusion as to how to dress with the fluctuation of temperature that Ottawa has been receiving lately…along comes an event that will no doubt create some heat, how fitting that it comes from the hot temperatures of Mexico!!
The Bytown museum has joined forces with the Mexican Embassy to showcase to the Ottawa public and to tourists alike what Mexico has to offer in regards to their art, food and by Mezcal. I’ll be honest, I am not familiar with Mezcal at all but that all seems to be part of the driving force for me to attend this cultural event. What could I possibly ask for more than an evening of exotic cuisine, fine art and a tasting of what has been coined as the ‘nectar of the gods’…other than actually being in Mexico. 
What is it? An exclusive evening of Mexican culture showcasing Mexico’s art, food and conducting a tasting of 5 Mezcals with traditional Mexican appetizers

Date and Time: Thursday December 12th & Saturday December 14th, 6pm

Where: The Bytown Museum, 1 Canal Lane (

Tickets: to reserve your seats please call 613-234-4570 ext. 221** 
**minimum $25 donation to the museum (tax receipts will be issued)

Beat the winter blues and join me as we discover some of the beauties that Mexico has to offer!

The stunningly beautiful Trafalgar Falls, located in the Trois Piton National Park!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

These famous twin waterfalls are a 20-minute drive from Dominica's capital, Roseau. It's a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path to the viewing platform, where you can photograph both falls.

Fun fact: The smaller waterfall has cool refreshing water, whereas the tall one is a hot spring.๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ”ฅ

Dominica's natural beauty is endless!!๐Ÿ˜
After some incredible snorkeling in Toucari Bay with @wanderlustcaribbean we needed some well deserved substance to refuel our bodies! ๐Ÿคฟ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ
The Keep'in It Real restaurant was the ideal eatery for some tasty snapper ๐ŸŸ with all its delicious trimmings (local greens, fried plantains, fritters with some rice and beans). 
To wash it all down, some local Rum with passion fruit juice ๐Ÿ˜‹ ๐Ÿน
This is what experiencing a new destination should be like...amazing adventures, delicious food and connecting with like-minded enthusiasts!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—
