Don't be afraid - you are not in India! You are still in the "Festival Country" in beautiful Ontario.
When you drive along the main street (Highway) you will even see a few European clubs. French missionaries arrived here already in 1669.
You are still in the part of our province which is well known for growing tobacco. This is celebrated every year in September with a "Tobacco Harvest Festival".
A "Tobacco Museum" was built in 1979. We never had the time to visit it what I regret now because it offers much more than offering information about tobacco. Small museums are very often a hidden germ.
Delhi is surrounded by farm land.
A German club - unfortunately closed when we came
We normally combined business trips with collecting information and taking pictures for our German Internet travel guide. For that reason we could not select the best travel season and our time was limited and we had to stay within our budget.
I really wanted to visit the club in order to show some pictures and information in our web site. I am happy that the club is still active and a valuable part of Delhi's community live.
Our next trip took place in April and we had to use our imagination to see the park where we stopped in summer.

Canada is fighting smoking because of the health hazards and increasing health care costs. Many people are quitting this addiction and the demand for tobacco is going down.
For that reason the farmers are looking for alternative products. They found them in peanuts ginseng, soy beans, Stevia etc.
However, industrial jobs were lost. Not only to attract visitor, but also to keep up the good spirits of the local people little events are organized without going overboard.
One of the remaining tobacco farms
When I came from Germany to Canada I was not aware that peanuts were growing here and what you can do with peanuts. Just visit one of the speciality stores when you see one.

Information about growing ginseng in Ontario can be found in our web site for
Please don't feel stupid if you never have heard anything about "Stevia" another relatively new product. I did not know either.
The plant comes originally from Paraguay and is considered to be a low calorie sweetener.
