Time out

Like many others, I'll be away for the next 10 days. The whole family is leaving for a get togheter up north. Behave yourselves while we are gone.

6 commentaires:

  1. How far north? Iqaluit peut-être?

  2. It will be hard to behave while you are away, but we'll try, o nostro severo maestro.
    Have a good trip, Costo, Bon Voyage!

  3. No Rob-Bear, when people from and around Montreal say "Up North, it means the Laurentians about 90 kilometres northwest actually.

  4. Further North? My goodness, it must be getting hot up there. Global warming? Enjoy.

  5. The Laurentians? Nord? Ce n'est pas possible!

    In terms of latitude, that's way south of where I am, and I'm in central Saskatchewan.

    Eh bien. Bon voyage! A la prochaine.

  6. Cher Rob-Bear, les Québécois ne perdent jamais le nord. We have "le nord", the Laurentian range, Highest peak Mont-Tremblant, 1300 meters, small for Edmontonians, huge for Saskatchewan, they stretch from the Ontario border to the St-Lawrence river near the Saguenay river ABOUT 90 TO 100 KM, from Montreal and Québec City. Then we have " le nord-ouest, Abitibi-Temiscamingue, east from Ontario and south of James bay. Then we have "le grand Nord, from James bay to Labrador but north of "la Côte Nord and la basse Côte Nord, between le grand nord and the St-Lawrence River all the way to Labrador.
    Of course most of it would be in south Saskatchewan save for le Grand nord and la basse Côte Nord.
    Have an atlas?
