Good bye

Hi everyone!

I'm sorry to say that I'll be leaving my blog in english. I haven't been writing in my blogs because I don't have enough time in my life right now, and thinking and thinking how not to loose my blogs, the only thing that I can think of is to start writing in just one of them, so this one is done for now :(

I had a great time will all of you, and you are welcome to visit me at my blog in spanish, leave a comment (is ok to write the comments in english ;)), or just drop by!

Thank you!

Ottawa :D

This long weekend we managed to go to a new city: Ottawa!!! We didn't have a lot of time because we drove there Friday and came back Sunday but we tried to see as much as possible :)

The parliament was really beautiful, I didn't expect it to be that big and amazing :D

The Notre-Dame Cathedral was cute from the outside and completely breath taking inside!

The river running between Ottawa and Gatineau...

And the Civilization Museum :D were we had a blast looking for eastern eggs xD

A really beautiful view from every step and a really nice city!

For more than 1.000 pictures (yeah, between Nelly and me managed 1000 pictures!) just go to my picasa :D There a lot of blurry pictures because I didn't delete them before uploading them, sorry ;)

Taxes time!

Taxes time!!! I kind of like taxes time in Canada because is different to how is done in Venezuela. When we get to this point in Venezuela is when you know how much you'll have to pay the goverment, but here is when you get to know how much the goverment will return to you after all the money you already gave them ^^

You can do your taxes for last year at any point between January and April, but I like March, since is not at the very last moment and because we never do it at the very beginning ;) Is important to keep everything you think it could help you for the tax return, like:
* TTC monthly passes, GO monthly passes and in general any public transportation monthly pass.
* Mortgage receipts.
* Car payment receipts (only if you bought it, no leasing).
* Utilities receipts.
* If you moved that year, the rent of the van/truck.
* And in general keep everything that you think could help, worst case escenario, you wont use it!.

There are a few ways to fill yoour tax return, like using tax softwares, hiring an accountant or going to a place like H&R. This is our second year and we did it again with H&R, where they know exactly what they are doing and almost always will give you your tax return at the moment ;)
