So, meetings aside, here are some shots of sights in the past week. I've seen totem poles in Kitwanga, bears along the Skeena River, pick -up trucks as common as trees and had coffee-swill and one of the best cups of java ever (Mercedes Beans in Hazelton). It's 500,000 square kilometres of land with less than 400,0o0 people. Do the the math...
Next week I'm on Haida Gwaii which will call for more camera action.
Me at the old Hudson Bay Trading Post in Fort St. James. She's an actress, I'm for real...
Gitksan Wet Suwetan people fishing at Moricetown Canyon (see the guy to the left)
The Bulkley River... wayyyy down below me - and I'm leaning over the rail (see below)
One-lane Hagwilget Bridge over the Bulkley River (see above to see below)
Mount something - one of the Seven Sisters near Terrace
it's a beautiful country.
it sounds like, besides work, you're having fun.
and ya, it's time for the u.s. to fix their healthcare system.
since we outsource everything anyway, i wish we'd just adopt canada's system.
No doubt those communities will be deeply appreciative of the travel effort /inconvenience you undertake to be with them first hand in helping achieve their community objectives and outcomes. That is never easy work but I always felt a renewed sense of fellowship when I similarly made visits (of a much shorter duration and only to local community businesses) to the country in Australia. Country folk are more appreciative of the personal face to face contact and very hospitable.
I always enjoyed that special interaction which I am sure you also will experience but to a much greater extent.
Are there any indigenous communities?
I live in one too, but everybody seems to go to Turkey and Spain for their holidays......
