Well you saw my post a couple of days ago about the cute little Canada goose and now I will post about a little bit of good old fashioned Canadian shame! Every year on Canada day since we've come down here I've read about celebrations other expats have with their consulates and embassies in other cities (street hockey tournaments and the like) and thought wow that would be fun. A couple of years ago, the consulate offered to buy Canadians dessert if they came out to a luncheon, this year when I inquired I was told that there is absolutely nothing planned in terms of Canada Day celebrations in Rio. Sad!
So what's an expat to do? I'll dress the Canadoca up in one of her Canada shirts, sing the anthem, break out the maple syrup and..... maybe watch some Rick Mercer reruns.
