Welcome to this blog – the best way I can think of to keep family and friends up-to-date with the rollercoaster that has been the emigration process for us, and our new adventures in Saskatoon. Saskatoon is in the prairie province of Saskatchewan, Canada, for those of you lacking in geographical knowledge :-). Apparently, if your dog runs away in Saskatchewan, you can watch it run for three days….
Saskatoon is called the City of Bridges, and is named for the Saskatoon berry. Harvest time is around now, so we’re looking forward to eating some saskatoon berry pie at the farmer’s market in Saskatoon over the next couple of weeks.
Here’s a quick link to a video of Saskatoon – this makes the city seem huge, but we’ve been told that we can walk along the river from the North End to the south in about half-an-hour.
