可惜… 亞伯達省不靠海，我沒辦法碰碰海水、吹吹海風。還好，卡加利有許多豐富好玩的節慶活動在這短短的夏季裡展開 (今年夏天就有多達40個活動!!)。讓我能夠天天出去曬太陽，把我健康的膚色補回來 😛
As the deadly winter had finally gone by, I’m glad the summer has arrived!
Unlike the lifeless winter season, Calgary’s summer explodes with festivals and celebrations. Did you know that Calgary has more than 40 festivals this summer? One of the biggest ones is, of course, the Calgary Stampede. Today, I’m going introduce to you the most unique one we went to this year.
The Sun and Salsa Festival is an annual street fair and salsa-tasting contest held in the Kensington neighborhood. Visitors sample through different salsa recipes served by the local businesses and vote for the best.
This is the first time Kev and I attend this festival. We arrived near noon and found the whole streets were already crowded with people.
My friend Pat took us to this is a small gelato store in downtown Vancouver for dessert. It is very famous and has won many awards around the world (as you can see from all the framed articles on the wall).
The gelato is handmade freshly daily. Only fresh ingredients are used. No pre-packaged frozen ingredients. No artificial stabilizers or additives.
I must say this place serves THE BEST gelato. I have never had any gelato that is as fine and smooth as it is. I am amazed by its silky texture. It is not too heavy or creamy. You can never get sick of it from eating too much. There is a variety of flavors to choose from. I love the lavender & earl grey flavor. Stracciatella is slightly sweeter.
Their gelato isn’t cheap but it is worth it. You must try it at least once in a lifetime.
My review: It is the chocolate coated golden apples. So good that it’s mythical.
