Montréal, Canada

014

Bonjour mes amis!

I received this card through  a swap on swap-bot from Marianne! Thank you so much, I like the card a lot 🙂

Montreal  is a city in the Canadian province of Quebec. It is the largest city in the province, the second-largest in Canada and the 9th-largest in North America. Originally called Ville-Marie, or “City of Mary”, it is named after Mount Royal, the triple-peaked hill in the heart of the city. The city is on the Island of Montreal, which took its name from the same source as the city and a few much smaller peripheral islands, the largest of which is Île Bizard.

Did you know?

Montréal is the second largest French speaking city in the world (after Paris). Most Montréalers are bilingual, especially downtown. A non-Speaker of French can do well by greeting strangers with a confident Bonjour! Chances are that anyone who speaks French will recognize the lack of French capability and switch to English. In stores, many clerks will greet patrons with “Bonjour/Hi”, indicating bilingual capability; a response of bonjour will begin a transaction in French. At the end of a transaction, you will often be sent on your way with a friendly Bonne journée (Have a nice day).

I send love!

I really like autumn. The world looks so pretty! It is so colorful! What is your favourite season??

Ontario is one of the provinces of Canada, located in east-centra CanadaIt is Canada’s most populous province or territory and fourth largest in total area. It is home to the nation’s most populous city, Toronto, and the nation’s capital, Ottawa.

Ontario is sometimes conceptually divided into two regions, Northern Ontario and Southern Ontario. The great majority of Ontario’s population and its arable land is located in the south. In contrast, the larger, northern part of Ontario is sparsely populated.

Tillsonburg, Canada

Hello friends, Bonjour les amies!

A postcard from a little town of Ontario, Canada. Thank you Tracy!

On the back of the postcard stands:

Tillsonburg – 1872, E.D. Tillson became the first Mayor
Annadale House, built in the 1880’s by E.D. Tillson

Seems to be a realy small town. In spanish they would say pueblocito, but I don’t know any english equivalent which would be so appropiate. Do someone of you know?

p.s. this is a postcard I got in the hotel I was last weekend for a seminar of my work. It was how it looks – amazing. The only thing I missed there was my Suman-Honeypuu.

To be honest, everything I know about Canada I learned in the TV Show How I met your mother 🙂

So the canadians like beevers, maple and coutesy.  (Belong the TV Show xD)

Canada is a bilingual country! In Quebec they speak a very funny frensh. I had once a french teacher from Quebec and she was really very funny 🙂 I liked her a lot.

Have you ever been to Canada? Are they as polite as they say?
