Found it interesting that the carver had no women. He said he was almost ready to take that plunge but not yet. I think he meant that he was concerned that women would not find his caricatures amusing. I wondered why but since we were in a group I didn't want to put him on the spot by asking. Then again it may just be women of a certain age who would find these faces amusing.
I find it so interesting that we can drive for about three hours and we are in a place where the culture and language is so different yet we are still in Canada. For all of our collective angst about Quebec sovereignty and their rights as a minority culture in our country the whole place brings such an interesting flavour to our travels. I find it curious that there are anglophones who do not like to drive through the province let alone stop for a visit. They are missing an experience that they would not hesitate to have in another country. Not really sure what that is all about??
