Multi-Cultural Night

Last week (before the arrival of TK -- more on his visit later, and yes, he's still here), Didz's school hosted a Multi-Cultural Night. Every student (or group of students from the same country) brought in traditional foods to share a bit of their homeland. There was a stocked bar of various unknown (in some cases homemade) liquors. We ate, drank and travelled the world without having to get on a plane.

The Bar - stocked and ready

Sampling Greek bites

Some people dressed in traditional costumes, and some prepared presentations, songs and dances. Didz and the Canadians contributed Poutine (a somewhat noble attempt at it, at least) and Rye & Gingers (which were a big hit - probably because the Canadian bartender was pouring them for everyone).

By the end of the night, everyone was dancing and taking shots from around the world... 

It was a huge success, a lot of fun, and made me want to travel to all of these places and experience them fully.... though the homemade plum liquor (some might call it gasoline) is something I hope I never have to experience again.
