This is a book about Manitoba. It is written in French! I didn’t know that when I placed it on hold through my online library catalogue. But since I am from French and am trying to keep my French au courant, I decided to read it. And what a joy it was. So, from now on,, once a month or so, I will try and read a book written in French.
Manitoba is the heart of Canada. Manitoba was known as Upper Canada for a long time, and in my heart it still has been up to today.
Manitoba is situated in the center of our wonderful country and it is a province that is so full of wonder and beauty. The plains are picturesque. The landscapes are gorgeous. So many find it impossible not to just stop along the highway and take a look around.
Manitoba has flat and fertile land. It is a province where wheat is grown. In fact, I still believe that a lot of our wheat producers come from Manitoba.
Manitoba is also a province where wild animals roam and the forests are dense indeed. Bears are not uncommon occurrences. So, one must be careful not to leave food for them.
There are many festivals in Winnipeg where food is one of the main attractions. Winter time is a great time for these festivals and carnivals. They bring people together.
There are quite a few Ukrainians in the region too. So, there are a lot of Ukrainian food. I just love Ukrainian food, being of Ukrainian descent myself.
This book was a joy to read. I learned so much about Manitoba that I didn’t know about. How nice.
Manitoba is definitely on my list of places to visit!
