Hey Sharon
Have an awesome time in Panama. Our favourite country, by far, in all of Central America. Many North Americans are retiring there.

the north
I have seen some of the north, after learning to fly, and been impressed. With the size of it, most of all.

Bright lights

Beautiful Lights!
Hi! I found your travel blog by searching Churchill, Manitoba. I'm completely fascinated with the aurora borealis and have dreamed about seeing them for the past couple of years. I've been reading a lot online about them, but it's still hard to determine the best time to go. Do you have any suggestions? When would the lights be the brightest and prettiest? Also, I am interested in seeing polar bears and beluga whales. Would that be possible in one trip? Thank you!

Finding a place to stay at holidays can be tough.
Ending up with s penthouse is not a bad way to go. Love the stats at the end.

Ft Churchill and Ithaca
I was surprised to see that the Ithaca was even there anymore. When I was 11 years old (1961) my father was stationed at Ft Churchill, as a USAF liaison officer. On one day during the summer we went with a few other families for a walk out to the Ithaca. At the time her hull was quite solid, as a result we weren't able to get on board. I found out around 1980 that the Canadian AFB had been razed, from a young lady I met in Mexico. She was a teacher at the town of Churchill and thought I was lying to her about being there as I had asked her for a dance and was amazed to hear where she was from. Her sister told her that there were still foundations of what used to be housing quadraplexes connected by corridors. You can see the original buildings in a picture taken from the air by googling Ft Churchill under images. Your article has great interest for me.

"It is quite amazing that in a world consumed by and infatuated by different forms of communication, that there are still so many misunderstandings... " Hmm. I think about this a lot in the work I do. There's material here for an evening together. If you come back to Sioux Lookout, please give us a call. That "misunderstanding" thing I would like to discuss with you. I want to know if you think technology is having a net benefit in the towns and villages you have visited. I have enjoyed your blog. I can get off on a good vicarious experience! I have several suggestions for travel, actually many. Ulan Bator? Les Iles de la Madelaine? Iceland? I would love to take Andrea to the islands off the coast of East Africa. India has always been a dream but it would have to be several months. I could go on .. ! Enjoy Churchhill. It has its own (particularly Canadian!) charm, yes? Brian
