Hamilton

[casi 2 semanas tarde, pero mejor que nada...]

El sabado en la tarde llegue a Toronto despues de 5 horas de autobus. Mis tios me recogieron, no los habia visto en un par de anios. Aparte de haberse quitado el bigote, ambos se veian tan jovenes como la ultima vez que nos vimos. Cenamos en uno de los mejores restaurantes: Le Marche. Un plato de noddles y un waffle mas tarde, me llevaron hasta Hamilton, donde mi pana Patrick me estaba esperando. Que increible lo que una idea tan tripa como couchsurfing puede hacer.

Me quede en la misma casa en la que se estaba quedando Patrick. Eternas gracias a sus anfitriones (Patrick y Robert) por prestarme su sofa por unas noches y por un divertido viaje a las cataratas del Niagara. Y por todo el jugo. Disculpen que no nos lo terminamos.

La fiesta 'Chocolate Factory' fue especial. Nunca ha escuchado rap-reggue-reggaeton-mix por tantas horas. Que util saber algo de meditacion zen. Los amigos de Patrick son bien panas. Debo confesar que disfrute algunas partes.

Casi olvido el poker vegetariano que jugamos antes de la fiesta...

Finalmente, Patrick y yo tomamos el bus a Toronto, y terminamos descansando en un parque mientras el esperaba por el bus que lo llevaria al aeropuerto, donde tomaria el avion a casa (Prince Edward island) luego de un mes fuera. Camine algunas cuadras hasta la estacion de autobus de greyhound y espere casi una hora a que saliera mi autobus a ottawa.

PD: Estoy mejorando mis habilidades de hablar con extranios. Intercambie emails y tuve una conversa con mi companiero de asiento que estaba en camino a quebec.

Por supuesto, le conte de coushsurfing :)

[almost 2 weeks late, but better than nothing...]

Saturday afternoon, arrived in Toronto after a 5 hour bus. Got picked up by my uncle and aunt, whom I hadnt seen in a couple years. Apart for Sergio being a mustache lighter, they looked as young as last time. We had dinner at one of the greatest restaurants ever: Le Marche. After that, they were nice enough to drive me to Hamilton, where my buddy Patrick was waiting for me. Incredible what a sweet idea like couchsurfing.com can do.

Got to stay a Patrick's hosts place: Robert and Patrick. Neverending thanks to them for lending me their couch for a few nights and for a really funny ride to Niagara Falls. And for all the juice. Sorry we didnt finish it :(

The 'Chocolate Factory' party was quite unique. Ive never listened to rap-reggue-reggaeton-mix for so many hours. Thats when your zen meditation lessons come in handy. Pat's friend are very cool people though. Gotta confess I enjoyed a good part of it.

Almost forgot the vegetarian poker we had before the party... I bet you an onion you've never had this kind of chips (pun intended)...

Finally, Patrick and I took the bus to Toronto, and ended up chilling out in a park while he waited for the right time to go to the airport, where he would take a plain home (Prince Edward Island) after a month out. I walked a few blocks to the Greyhound Bus Station and waited about an hour for my Ottawa bus to depart.

PS: Im getting good at this talking-to-stragers thing. I exchanged emails and had a nice talk with my seat neighbour who was travelling to Quebeq. Introduced him to couchsurfing too while I was at it :)
