Jul 25, 2013 - Visit to Sainte Marie among the Hurons & Martyrs' Shrine.
Today drove to midland, Ontario, which is to the north of Canada. Visited the camp of Sainte Marie among the Hurons. SM was founded by French Jesuits in 1639 in the land of Wendat or Huron people. It was actually designed as retreat for missionaries and a refund for the Christian Hurons, but it was also an example of the French culture. The Wendat shared their knowledge with theJesuits and the mission camp became self sufficient. They made dwellings of the bark of the birch and elm greets, grew corn, kept livestock for food.

Sep 14, 2004 - In Toronto
I've arrived in Toronto - or for those of you who know where it is, Orillia. Dad picked me up from the airport last night and we drove up. The chaos of moving was soooo exciting. As always, I might have underestimated how much crap I really have. Fortunately I have some movers going in today to pick up the last little bits of stuff that are at the house. Poor Mich, Trev and JoJo have been awesome in helping me move some of my stuff and in disassembling furniture. I got on the plane yesterday and all I could think was "what the hell am i...Jump to full entry
