by Ada@

EN: Approximative 40 min drive from Windsor city to Fort Malden or Fort Amherstburg it is a great choice for an afternoon trip but be aware that last admission is at 4:15 p.m closing time is 5 p.m so make sure you will be on time!

RO: La aproximativ 40 de minunte de condus din Windsor este localizat Fortul Malden sau Fortul Amherstburg care este o optiune buna pentru o plimbare scurta dar atentie la incadrarea in timp deoarece ultima intrare este la 4:15 p.m si ora de inchidere este 5 p.m asa ca asigurate ca esti la timp pentru o vizita fara incidente!

EN: If you like history this place is a wonderful site part of the National Historic Site of Canada and also represents the location of a historic meeting between Major General Sir Isaac Brook and Shawnee Chief Tecumseh, the two rulers of the area on that time.

RO: Daca iti place istoria acest loc face parte din Situl Istoric National al Canadei si de asemenea reprezinta locatia istorica a intalnirii dintre General Maior Isaac Brook si Seful Shawnee al Primei Natiuni Tecumseh, cei doi conducatori a zonei in aceea perioada de timp.

EN: The fort was built by British forces to defend the territory against any American invasion (USA) which worked till the War of 1812 when the USA army invaded Fort Malden and stay in Canada till 1815; this is known as the longest American occupation on Canadian soil. After the years of war, the fort had been the host for different roles in history as a British Pensioner Scheme and would later become an Ontario Provincial Asylum in 1859.

RO: Fortul a fost construit de catre fortele britanice pentru a aparea teritoriul impotriva unei invazii Americane (USA), care si-a indeplinit misunea pana la razboiul din 1812 cand armata americana a reusit sa invadeze fortul Malden si sa-l ocupe pana in 1815; acest fapt este cunoscut ca cea mai lunga ocupatie americana pe teritoriul Canadei. Dupa anii de razboi, fortul a functionat deservind diverse roluri in istorie, printre cele mai cunoscute sunt Schema Britanica de pensionare si mai tarziu a devenit Centrul Provincial al zonei Ontario pentru azil in 1859.

EN: It is a nice ensemble that catches your eyes.

RO: Este un ansamblu complex care te prinde.

EN: Fort Malden museum by the time the fort became a National Historic Park and today it is the visitor center and the first stop in our journey because to continue the trip you have to pay a small fee.

RO: Initial a fost muzeul Fortului Malden cand fortul a devenit parte a Parcului National Istoric, acum e primul contact in cadrul asamblului numit centrul vizitatorului si prima oprire deorece ca sa poti continua trebuie sa platesti o mica taxa.

EN: Brick Barrack for me, it is the most touchable place from the site, where you can find uniforms, hats, muskets and you can dress like a British military. Also, if you are lucky you can assist in a musket demonstration! I have never been so close to a shot in my life so at the first one (they do like 3 shots) I was scared and the sound is loud and scary!

RO: Baraca de caramida pentru mine este cea mai accesibila parte a sitului in ideea ca poti gasi uniforme, palarii, pusti si le poti utiliza ca rechizita pentru a te tranforma intr-un militar britanic. De asemenea, daca esti norocos poti asista la o demonstratie a trageri cu o pusca, replica a acelei periode! Eu nu am fost niciodata in viata mea atata de aproape de o impuscatura asa ca la prima din cele 3 pe care le executa m- am speriat si sunetul este puternic si zgomotos!

EN: In the back of the brick barrack is the kitchen and I found out that if you are there around noon you can have a stew made there approximative in the same way as the soldiers were doing! Keep that in mind for your trip!

RO: In spatele baracii de caramida este bucataria si unde am aflat ca daca ajungi in jurul pranzului la fort, te poti delecta cu un pranz similar cu al soldatilor din acele timpuri, o tocanita militareasca nu suna chiar rau!

EN: This trip is a quite nice experience, informative and fun! RO: Acesta excursie a fost o experinta interesanta si informativa!

BYE till next time !!!!
