Quebec special
http://travel.timesonline.co.uk/section/0,,19249,00.html

10 reasons to visit Quebec (I don't agree with some but, overall it's good)
http://travel.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,19249-1426982,00.html

Stretching from the borders of New England northward almost as far as the Arctic Circle, it is three times the size of France and seven times the size of the UK. It has three climatic zones, over a million lakes, one-sixth of the world's fresh water, and a coastline 5500 miles long. No wonder that the Quebecois tend to think of themselves as a nation.

In the great monoculture of anglophone North America, the province of Quebec is the single dissenting voice. French in language, history and custom, it brings to North America many of the same characteristics that France brings to Europe - sophistication, ?lan, style, culinary delights, and political obduracy.

What made me laugh is this

If you don?t possess a sweet tooth, yet health foods just aren?t your thing, then Qu?bec has a final artery-clogging treat in store ? poutine: chips smothered in curd cheese and gravy. So much a national institution that McDonalds, deciding if you can?t beat them, join them, put the snack on its menu in the province. It?s the ultimate winter comfort food, if not exactly a favourite with the Atkins crowd

although the best place for poutine is "Ashton" and in the winter they give rebates so if it's -20C you get 20% off... with a minimum of 10% 8)


A nice article on French language in Quebec, as well as some talk about montreal

I read everything and I'm surprised by how well he described stuff, it doesn't look biaised and it looks like he's got a good vision of things in a realtively short time, I couldn't have said it much better than that.

So it's interesting stuff to read if you've got some free time :)

Well technically, cultivated is correct:

cultivated (of people, manners, etc)
having or showing good taste and refinement.

After looking on www.dictionary.com

You're right, my bad, though I usually think of cultivated things as being grown...

Sorry Ren... :oops:

So the French are seeking approval from the English now :lol: j/k?

Woah there ! Wink all you want, "not so bad" would be more appropriate. :roll:

P'tit comique. :)
 
Yeah, they don't recon we're superior yet, even though we are.

Mais ce sont des anglophones, on ne peut pas s'attendre ? trop d'eux! :lol:
 
great, we could have a mini meet.. too bad you can't bring the skyline, I would have asked for a ride :lol:
