Aus Euren E-Mails wird immer wieder klar, dass so mancher von Euch Kanada vermutlich mit Sibirien verwechselt. Doch wer meint, dass sich komplett Kanada unter einen zentimeterdicken Eisschicht befindet, irrt!

Hier in Toronto ist es erträglich, auch wenn man sich an die Kälte erst einmal gewöhnen muss. Aber der See hier hat den großen Vorteil, dass die Temperaturen selten unter -10 Grad tagsüber absinken, meistens pendeln die Temperaturen derzeit so um die -5 Grad herum. In der Sonne ist das wirklich auszuhalten, und ohne brauche auch ich Handschuhe. Inzwischen habe ich meine Fingerhandschuhe als Fehlkauf verbucht, und laufe wie Beate mit Fausthandschuhe im Canada-Design herum. Da habe ich schon mehr Probleme mit meiner Mütze, da ich immer wie Depp Jones aussehe, wenn ich sie absetze und die gegelten Haare platt herumliegen. Aber so groß ist die Not auch noch nicht, dass ich nun Ohrenschützer kaufen muss, die extra am Hinterkopf entlanglaufen. Vermutlich wird auch das noch kommen, genauso wie viele Frauen offensichtlich selbstverständlich in ihren Handtaschen schicke Schuhe fürs Büro oder für die Disco mitschleppen.

Der wärmste Ort in Kanada im Winter ist vielleicht Vancouver. Nach meinem Trip dorthin im Februar erscheint uns das allerdings als keine wünschenswerte Alternative. Zwischen 0 und 10 Grad (die Briefträger laufen in kurzen Hosen herum) sind zwar gar nicht so schlecht, wenn man hier im Wind steht und sich doch mal den Hintern abfriert. Aber Dauerbewölkung, seltenes Sonnenlicht und Regen statt Schnee? Dann doch lieber Fausthandschuhe kaufen!

Aber irgendwann im Januar vermutlich werden wir doch einmal ein Auto mieten und raus in die Schneewüste fahren. Hier in Toronto gibt es ja bisher kaum Schnee. Vor allem aber soll Beate einmal sehen, wie schräg es sich anfühlt wenn man mitten im Schneetreiben über einen Highway unterwegs ist. Das ist eine Erfahrung, die man einfach mal gemacht haben muss.

Derzeit jedenfalls können wir sagen dass wir es hier in Toronto recht gut erwischt haben. Zwar gibt es leider wenig Schnee und die Berge sind zu weit weg. Dafür ist es derzeit bei Euch in Deutschland regelmäßig kälter als hier. Obendrein liegt Toronto südlicher als Stuttgart, d.h. hier bekommt man mehr Tageslicht zu sehen. Das ist ein wirklich angenehmer Aspekt!

Mehr als 6 Wochen sind vergangen, Zeit für einen ersten Blick zurück und was sich seit der Ankunft alles getan hat. Vieles hier ist anders als zu Hause oder als man es als Tourist wahrnimmt. Genau dafür sind wir hergekommen, und es gibt bereits einiges zu berichten. Man muss eben von zu Hause weg sein um zu merken, wie schön manche Dinge doch sind, bzw. wie gut man es hat.

Wie billig wir telefonieren und wie hart man von den Supermärkten in Deutschland umkämpft wird, bemerkt man hier z.B. sehr schnell. Manche Dinge laufen bei uns sehr viel effizienter ab und erscheinen uns hier umständlich. Auch kommt es uns komisch vor, dass hier ein Ausweis nicht besonders viel wert ist, und wir können uns noch nicht so richtig an die “Freiheit” gewöhnen, dass es hier kein Einwohnermeldeamt gibt. Nach gut 15 Jahren ohne einen Scheck auszufertigen war es auch erst einmal ein Schock, dass die Uhren in dieser Hinsicht noch anders laufen. Entsprechend froh waren wir, dass unser Vermieter dann doch mit eine Überweisungen einverstanden ist. Selbstverständlich erst, nachdem er einen Scheck über die erste und letzte Miete sowie einen weiteren für die Kaution in der Hand hielt (das ist hier so üblich und wird sich so schnell auch nicht ändern).

Manchmal kommen wir uns vor wie in einem Film, vor allem wenn die Sirenen von Polizei, Feuerwehr oder Rettungsdienst aufheulen. Aber insgesamt gesehen gewöhnt man sich hier schnell an alles, und wir genießen die Erfahrungen die wir sammeln. Man muss eben viel lernen, aber das geht im Zeitalter des Internets sehr gut. Danke an dieser Stelle an Schmiddi, ohne den wir kein Internet auf dem Handy hätten! Das ist eine wirklich große Hilfe, die wir nicht missen möchten!

Großen Respekt haben wir vor den Menschen, die den gleichen Schritt wie wir vor 20 Jahren gewagt haben, und denen kein Internet helfen konnte. Vieles ist so einfach für uns, und muss früher unendlich viel Zeit gekostet haben. Wie komme ich am besten mit den Öffentlichen zu der neuen Wohnung, die wir uns anschauen wollen? Die Website des TTC (Toronto Transit Commission, der lokale Verkehrsverbund) rechnet einem die schnellste Route aus. Sind in der Nähe der Wohnung auch Supermärkte in Fußdistanz? Google zeigt einem wo. Was bedeutet „perm-press“ auf der Waschmaschine der Münzwäscherei? Die Leo-Website weiß es. Natürlich auf dem Handy, damit man nicht heimlaufen muss bevor der Waschgang beginnen kann. Google Streetview zeigt uns in welcher Gegend das gewünschte Haus liegt, und ob wir uns überhaupt beim Vermieter melden wollen. Das Kartenmaterial auf dem Handy zeigt uns wie wir laufen müssen wenn wir aus der U-Bahn aussteigen, und die Spiele auf dem Handy verkürzen die Fahrzeit. Und wenn man im Bus oder der Straßenbahn sitzt kann man Eure neuesten mails lesen, in der U-Bahn haben die Handys leider kein Netz. Da sind wir wieder beim Thema. Manchmal ist das Leben in Deutschland einfach bequemer, und die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel gehören definitiv dazu. Aber wie unbequem es ohne Internet zu Hause und ein Smartphone in der Hand wäre? Ich will es mir gar nicht vorstellen!

Natürlich war es auch manchmal ermüdend, wenn man sich an die Kanadischen Gegebenheiten gewöhnen muss. Unser erster Versuch eine Wohnung zu mieten wurde abgelehnt, einfach weil wir nicht die hier in Kanada üblichen Dokumente in der Hand hatten. Bestätigung des Arbeitsplatzes, Bankauskunft, Referenzen, alles Dinge über die man in Deutschland lacht, wenn man eine Wohnung mieten will. Es hat uns ganz schön Kraft gekostet, aber inzwischen haben wir ja einen Mietvertrag in der Tasche und bald geht es los, in die neue Wohnung rein. Dementsprechend haben wir auch erst mal keine Nebenjobs angenommen, wie wir uns das vorgestellt hatten. Das Abenteuer, und natürlich eine Portion Urlaub, hatten dann doch erst einmal Vorrang.

Aber das Beispiel mit der Wohnung zeigt, dass wir lernen uns hier anzupassen. Beate hat ihr Englisch mächtig aufpoliert, es macht echt Spaß mit anzusehen wie sie immer mehr versteht und ihre Hemmungen selber zu sprechen abfallen. Wir genießen das Multikulturelle hier, auf unterschiedliche Art und Weise. Der koreanische Grill ist ein Aspekt (Flo, das musst Du echt probieren). Der andere ist, dass die meisten Menschen hier Einwanderer sind, egal in welcher Generation. Dementsprechend ist die Gelassenheit groß, wenn man sich selber einmal nicht richtig ausdrückt, oder der Mensch auf der anderen Seite der Theke ein weit schlechteres Englisch drauf hat als man selber.

Wir sind gespannt was wir noch alles lernen – und was wir vermissen werden, wenn wir wieder in Deutschland leben.

Es war ganz schön mühsam, aber wir haben die Zusage für eine neue Wohnung. Am 27. Dezember ist es vorbei mit der WG-Zeit! Vor uns steht der hoffentlich leichteste Umzug den wir jemals hatten bzw. haben werden, schließlich sind wir nur mit den Klamotten in unseren Koffern hier angekommen. Daran gibt es aber bereits erste Zweifel nachdem heute unser finnischer Mitbewohner seine Heimreise angetreten hat, denn er hat uns viele Sachen überlassen.

Die neue Wohnung ist nahe am See und dem Zentrum. Das Haus steht mitten in einer Großbaustelle und ist selber noch nicht zu 100% fertiggestellt. Davon merkt man auf den Fluren oder in der Wohnung allerdings nicht mehr, außerdem wird man mit einem herrlichen Blick auf Downtown Toronto verwöhnt. Vermutlich am Dienstag werden wir vor Ort einen Internetanschluss haben, dann gibt es natürlich auch Bilder für Euch.

Kurz vor der Abreise von Matty, unserem finnischen Mitbewohner, gab es die ersten Bratäpfel. Nicht nur er war begeistert, auch für uns selber war das einfach ein schöner Moment. Hier im Ausland geht man mit solchen Traditionen dann doch noch eine Spur bewusster um, auch wenn man das so meistens gar nicht vorhat. Dazu gab es Eggnog, unser zweiter Versuch ist uns echt gut gelungen. Als Erfahrung können wir noch vermelden, dass er noch besser schmeckt wenn man den fertigen Eggnog nicht sofort trinkt, sondern wenn sich die Sahne mit dem Rest gemütlich im Kühlschrank vereinen kann.

Eggnog gehört zur amerikanischen Weihnacht einfach dazu, genauso wie Rentiere und Elfen zum Team des Weihnachtsmanns. Ursprünglich kommt dieses Getränk aus England und wurde auch ohne Alkohol getrunken, aber das interessiert hier inzwischen nur noch Minderheiten. Die Zutaten sind Eier, Milch, Zucker, Vanille und Muskat, getrunken wird das Ganze kalt.

Mehrheiten haben bekanntlich mit Minderheiten kein Problem, wenn sich diese den Gepflogenheiten der Masse anpassen (man sieht, das Problem bei dennoch auftretenden Konflikten liegt eindeutig bei den Minderheiten). Also waren wir natürlich hochmotiviert Eggnog auszuprobieren, Neugierde auf alkoholische Getränke ist uns bekanntlich völlig Wesensfremd. Der erste Versuch war gekaufter Eggnog aus dem Supermarkt, der dementsprechend ohne Alkohol auskommen musste. Das schmeckte leider recht künstlich. Unsere Recherche ergab, dass für Eggnog inzwischen gemäß Vorschrift weniger als 0,1% Eiweißanteile notwendig sind. Vermutlich hat ein Lobbyist die Regierung davon überzeugt, dass der Bedarf für traditionellen Eggnog heutzutage die jährliche Welt-Eierernte um das Zehnfache übersteigt und man verhindern muss, dass sich nur noch die Oberschicht Eggnog leisten kann.

Für uns war das Anlass genug, sich selber einmal ans Werk zu machen und einen ersten Versuch zu unternehmen. Natürlich mit Alkohol ;-) Hier unser Rezept:

6 Eier
2 extra Eiweiß
4 Tassen* Vollmilch
3/4 Tasse* Schlagsahne
1/2 Tasse* plus 2 Esslöffel Zucker
1/4 Esslöffel Salz
1 Esslöffel Vanille Extrakt
1/2 Teelöffel gemahlene Muskatnuss
1 Tasse* Bourbon

Tasse*: Ca. 240ml

Obwohl in Kanada das metrische System eingeführt wurde gibt es immer noch häufig Relikte aus der schlechten alten Zeit zu bestaunen. Eine Tasse (Cup) ist umgerechnet etwas weniger als 240ml Flüssigkeit. In Rezepten werden aber auch viele andere Zutaten wie Mehl, Zucker usw. in Cup-Einheiten gemessen, und deswegen ist diese Messgröße einfach nicht wegzudenken. Wer es genau wissen will findet hier einen schönen Trick: http://www.google.de/#hl=de&source=hp&q=1+cup+in+ml&aq=f&aqi=g1&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&fp=d4abc4356d99a72

Doch zurück zum Rezept:

Eier, Salz und Zucker solange mixen bis sich der Zucker vollständig aufgelöst hat. Langsam die Milch hinzufügen. Ab damit in einen Topf und 25-30 Minuten vorsichtig erwärmen. Die Flüssigkeit sollte nicht über 70 Grad kommen und am Ende an der Unterseite eines Löffels kleben bleiben. Passt auf, dass das Eiweiß nicht gerinnt!

Runter damit vom Feuer (evtl. geronnenes Eiweiß entfernen), dann Bourbon, Vanille und Muskat dazu. Abdecken und für mindestens 4 Stunden in den Kühlschrank damit. Dann die Sahne steif schlagen, unterheben und genießen.

Bei uns hat das für den ersten Versuch schon recht gut geklappt, auch wenn das Handrührgerät den Eindruck machte, dass es damals bei der Invasion der Normandie erbeutet wurde. Leider war die Masse nicht zähflüssig genug, da wir zu vorsichtig beim erwärmen waren. Dadurch haben sich nicht alle Bestandteile vereint. Aber besser als der Eggnog auf dem Weihnachtsmarkt hat es schon geschmeckt. Viel Spaß beim selber ausprobieren. Wir sind auf Eure Kommentare gespannt!

Anfang dieser Woche war unser äußeres Fenster zum ersten Mal zugefroren. Dank einer Amok laufenden Heizung hatte sich das schnell erledigt, aber an den gefrorenen Zustand muss man sich hier in Altbauwohnungen einfach gewöhnen (das geht den ganzen Winter so).

Diese Fenster sind sowieso der Hammer! Leider kann ich Euch kein Bild von den Fenstern hier zeigen, da eine ehemalige Garagenfirma aus Redmond, Washington, Google mit seinen Produkten zuspamt. Jedenfalls kann man bei den Standartfenstern hierzulande nur etwas mehr als das untere Drittel öffnen, der Rest ist fest und bleibt (hoffentlich) wie er ist. Der untere Teil besteht aus 4 verschiebbaren Einzelfenstern – auch eine Art von Doppelverglasung. Wer sich das nun geistig richtig vorstellt kommt schnell zu dem Schluß, dass Luft nur ins Zimmer kommt wenn man alle 4 Schiebfensterchen auf die gleiche Seite schiebt. Prinzipiell richtig, allerdings sollte man nicht von deutschen Toleranzen ausgehen, deswegen gibt es hier auch immer wieder einen Spalt durch den man zwischen den einzelnen Rahmen hindurchsehen kann. Es kommt also zuviel Luft im geschlossenen Zustand und zu wenig Luft bei geöffnetem Fenster ins Zimmer. Auch ein Grund, warum wir nach einer Neubauwohnung suchen.

Nach einer kurzen Erholungsphase wurde es nun wieder knackig kalt, heute mussten wir bei -13 Grad auf unseren Bus warten. Wobei die Kälte nur ein Teil des Problems ist, denn in Nordamerika pfeift der Wind ungehindert durch die Straßen, da quasi 99% aller Kreuzungen im rechten Winkel gebaut sind. Dadurch kann man zwar sehr einfach navigieren. Aber wenn der Wind sich auf der einen Seite der Stadt meldet, merkt man das sehr schnell auch auf der anderen Seite!

Seit der erste Schnee gefallen ist hat sich die Mode merklich gewandelt. Es sind keine unbestrumpften Frauen in der U-Bahn mehr zu sehen, was vorher auch bei unter 5 Grad noch Standard war. Doch obwohl wir heute die ersten Gesichtsmasken in den Öffentlichen bestaunen durften, laufen die Kanadier in den Einkaufszentren erstaunlich sommerlich herum. Schulterfreie weibliche Exemplare oder ein possierliches Männchen mit Flip-Flops - die Kanadier gehen mit der Kälte einfach anders um.

Rockstar ist ein auch in Deutschland bekannter Energy Drink. Zucker, Koffein, Taurin, die üblichen Zutaten. Warum ich darüber schreibe? Weil auf den Dosen nicht nur draufsteht was drin ist, sondern auch ein Warnhinweis „Do not mix with alcohol“. Klingt erst mal nach der üblichen Angst hier in Nordamerika, verklagt zu werden. Es ist ja nichts neues, dass hier die schrägsten Klagen zugelassen werden.

Lustig wird dieser Hinweis aber, wenn man dann im Liqueur Store Alkohol einkauft und schon wieder vor einer Dose Rockstar steht. Doch warum steht die hier? Bleifreie Getränke haben in so einem Laden bekanntlich nichts zu suchen. Schaut Euch das Bild selbst an :-)

Rockstar

Ob es dieses Angebot noch lange gibt ist derzeit fraglich. Nach einem Artikel in der New York Times will in den USA die Food and Drug Administration gegen Mischgetränke dieser Art vorgehen. Es gibt hier ein großes Aufsehen um den kommerziellen Erfolg dieser Drinks. Four Loco ist der bekannteste von ihnen, und mit bis zu 12% Alkohol (je nach Bundesstaat), Koffein, Taurin und Guarana auch ein strammer Schlag auf das Nervensystem. Natürlich ist dann auch noch genügend Zucker drin, damit man den Alkohol nicht schmeckt.

Deswegen werden auch regelmäßig Opfer von Getränkeunfällen in die Krankenhäuser eingeliefert, die es mit der Energie/Alkohol-Menge übertrieben haben. Es gab auch schon Todesfälle bedingt durch diese Drinks. Entsprechend groß ist die öffentliche Diskussion über diese Dosen derzeit.

Am Samstag waren wir im Distellery District, um uns den Weihnachtsmarkt anzuschauen. Ein kleines bisschen Heimat war es schon, aber eben nicht ganz. Der Distellery District ist ein altes Fabrikgelände in dem sich mittlerweile Galerien und Shops der kulterellen Art niedergelassen haben. Außerdem exklusive Bars und Restaurants (wer Berlin Friedrichshain kennt, kann sich das demenstprechend vorstellen). Auf diesem Gelände waren dann auch die Weihnachtsmarktbuden verteilt, wie wir sie aus Deutschland kennen. Der einzige Unterschied dazu ist, sie sind noch nicht so zahlreich und es ist kein einziger Glühweinstand dabei. Es gibt eine einzige Bar an der alkoholische Getränke verkauft werden, die natürlich gut unter Beschlag steht (der einzige Ort, an dem man einen Glühwein bekommt). Wir haben uns ein Eggnog und einen Hot Toddy http://www.kochmeister.com/r/58810-hot-toddy.html (die schottische Antwort auf unseren Grog) gegönnt, um uns ein wenig aufzuwärmen, denn mittlerweile haben wir auch hier Minustemparaturen.

Wir haben sogar einen Stand mit lauter deutschen Naschereien gefunden und uns dort einen Stollen und Dominosteine gekauft, worauf ich in den letzten Jahren keine Lust mehr hatte. Hier wird es dann aber wieder zu etwas besonderen. Besonders gut besucht was der Markt nicht, die Anzahl der Stände hielt sich ebenfalls in Grenzen. Zwischendurch wurde zwar ein Schuhplattler aufgeführt, der macht einen Besuch im nächsten Jahr aber auch nicht gerade wahrscheinlicher.

Die Wohnungssuche ist derzeit wirklich anstrengend für uns. Zum einen liegt das daran, dass wir natürlich nicht nur die potentielle neue Wohnung besichtigen, sondern auch die Gegend erkundigen. In Toronto will man nicht am falschen Eck wohnen, außerdem haben wir kein Auto und müssen immer schauen wie weit von der Wohnung der nächste Supermarkt ist.

Zum anderen funktioniert hier der Wohnungsmarkt ganz anders. Ein Makler z.B. bekommt sein Geld nicht vom Mieter, sondern vom Vermieter. Diese Berufsgruppe scheint hier kein einfaches Leben zu haben, jedenfalls nicht die Exemplare denen wir bisher begegnet sind. Bei einer erfolgreichen Vermittlung bekommen sie eine halbe Monatsmiete, außerdem ist der Wettbewerb hart. Die Wohnungen die wir bisher besichtigt haben werden alle zentral ausgeschrieben, ab dann gilt für alle Makler: Wer zuerst kommt mahlt zuerst. In einer Wohnung haben wir die Visitenkarten von 15 unterschiedlichen Maklern liegen sehen!

Dementsprechend ist es für uns zwar recht nett mit einem Makler zu arbeiten, aber es hat auch seine Nachteile. Man kommt in eine Wohnung, stellt Fragen – und der Gegenüber liest vom Blatt ab. Das reicht natürlich nicht um all unsere Fragen zu beantworten, dementsprechend fruchtet ein erstes Gespräch wenig.

Für uns ebenfalls sehr ungewöhnlich ist, dass neue Mieter in fast allen Fällen erst mal einen Vertrag über 12 Monate abschließen müssen. Im Notfall kann man sich einen Nachmieter suchen. Da wir eine möblierte Wohnung suchen gibt es für uns um diese 12 Monate fast keinen Ausweg, so ist eben leider der Markt.

Ebenfalls für Kopfschütteln sorgt, dass man die Miete per Scheck bezahlt, und zwar brav alle 12 Schecks entsprechend datiert im Voraus. Der Vermieter läuft dann offensichtlich jeden Monat zur Bank und reicht einen nach dem anderen ein. Wie bequem ein Dauerauftrag ist hat sich hier vermutlich noch nicht herumgesprochen. Aber wegen genau dieser Erfahrungen sind wir ja hierhergekommen. Wir sind gespannt was wir noch alles lernen müssen.
