Elizabeth Carrillo, giving free samples of the Chinese take-out counter's Ginger Beef. (The sample I had was a lot better than the serving I purchased for lunch. But it was still edible... On our last night in Calgary we learned that our hotel was only 2 blocks from Chinaton. Oh well, maybe next time.) She's Scottish and her husband's from Spain, so naturally they moved to Canada. Their daughter has dark, olive skin. When Mom volunteered a lot at the kid's elementary school (and Mom was a blonde at that time), she heard a kid asking her daughter "how come you're so dark when you're mom's so fair?" (Or words to that effect.) Daughter's response: "Because I was born in Montreal!"
