Mont-Tremblant

Here are two wooden bookmarks that my aunt acquired in Canada. They’re from Mont-Tremblant:

Mont-Tremblant is a city in the Laurentian mountains of Quebec, Canada. Mont-Tremblant is most famous for ski resorts such as the Mont-Tremblant Ski Resort, which is at the foot of a mountain called Mont Tremblant (derived from local Algonquins who referred to it as the “trembling mountain”).

Teatro Colón

October 27, 2011

Hey y’all, I’m back!

This is a bookmark from the Colón (Columbus) Theatre, which is the main opera house here in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It’s made of plastic and comes in its own envelope:

Here’s a picture of the theatre itself:

I received these from Cathie today. She tells me this first bookmark was made for the Rugby World Cup :

And the second one shows the Milford Sound, a fjord in the south west of New Zealand’s South Island, judged as the world’s top travel destination and acclaimed as New Zealand’s most famous tourist destination :

It looks better with light behind it :

Thank you ! :-)
