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!
