Nunavut Once, Nunavut Twice

Our incredible journey to Nunavut last year was captured by non other than the Screaming Avocado's good friend Steve Stacey on his The Local Come Lately blog site.  This account of the experience was followed up in Canadian Living's November 2011 Issue written by Steve.  Check out some of the images and story at Canadian Living Photos

We loved the experience in Nunavut so much, we had to make the journey one more time.  With some special luck our application to YMCA Youth Exchanges Canada for another exchange was accepted and in April we'll be heading to Cape Dorset, Nunavut with a new group of students.  Very exciting stuff!  On the flip side our new friends will head south in May to experience life in and around Stratford.  Of course the focus of the trip will be on culture, food and nutrition.

Cuba - Culture and Food

A long absence from our first post of the year.  We've been busy with the operation of the Screaming Avocado, which to our surprise is in it's eighth year.  How many incredible meals have the the students prepared and served to their peers.

The end of October the Screaming Gang headed to Cuba for a week of Cuban culture.  Of course we brought along Stratford's official blogger and our good friend Steve Stacey to chronicle the experience.
