Subject: From Canada

Yes, I am living out in the boonies in the Peterborough area about one hour north of Toronto. We have been living here for about ten years. I am studying Portuguese like mad for our trip this summer. The pronunciation is quite difficult but I think I am catching on. I will know how to ask all the appropriate questions, such as "How far is it to...?" "Is this the right road to..." "How much does it cost to..." but will probably be swamped when trying to understand the answers. Anyway, I think the people will be absolutely great. I have met and worked with many Portuguese families in Canada and they have been marvellous "The salt of the earth".
