Here we are, sitting in Puvirnituq, Québec! We are halfway to Salluit!
After a very late departure from Kingston last night and a hectic morning dealing with baggage, we are thankful to be sitting in a (tiny) airport waiting for our next flight. Our fears of having over-weight suitcases were definitely confirmed when we left Montreal this morning and ended up having to pack a THIRD 30kg suitcase.
We swear it’s not all clothes and make-up though: almost all of our luggage is full of food. The cost of food in Salluit is so high that we made a huge Costco run last week so we could bring up as much food as possible.
We are getting very excited to meet Bernard (the principal of the secondary school Ikusuik), Monique (our very gracious host-mother), all of the students and the rest of the community members. We have heard nothing but great things about everyone!
We will post again soon once we have actually reached Salluit.
