#725 Postcard from Otter Lake, Quebec

Canada          Quebec

During the Easter Weekend, we visited Escapade Eskimo in Otter Lake, Quebec to try dog sledding. I rode the dog sled with Maryam in early February this year during the Governor’s General Open Day at Rideau Hall, so this is my second ride with Maryam. However for Aiman and mama it was their first time to ride dog sled.

Long Break and Busy Winter Weeks!

I am back after a long winter vacation and some really busy winter weeks! Now there is a box full of postcards and letters that I received since middle of December last year, and it will take some time before I will be able to upload them here. To all my friends out there, thanks a lot for your postcards and letters, and please please forgive me for my very late reply and late updates. To all blog readers, thank you for your visits and comments.
