Our Nunavut friends have gone home

The trip to the north is over and I can't believe it's been so long since we've posted.  The Nunuavut students visited, shared and experienced.  Their days were full of southern adventure and things they wanted to do and visit.  From seeing a cow milking operation, the smell of a pork producer, Niagara Falls, Toronto and hanging with students at Stratford Northwestern they actively participated with enthusiasm.

Their trip home made our missed flights silly to complain about.  While they were able to get out of Stratford, Toronto an Edmonton on time, they were left waiting in Yellowknife for three extra nights due to a blizzard in Cambridge Bay.  The finally did get home on three different flights and without their luggage!  It arrived later in the week. 

We miss our friends from the north and all plan on seeing them again.  Another trip to Cambridge Bay you ask?  Already planning it for future students.  Please click on article links below.
