Yesterday night, like every week, we visited Joanne. The hamlet's nurse speaks French, with a great accent. She is from Tracadie Sheila (Acadian Peninsula), and she has been working for more than twenty years in Nunavut. Joanne became our friend, Aurore and Léonie love her.
Many friends gathered at her home last night to say goodbye. Complete surprise, we were very touched! That's almost two years since we arrived in Grise Fiord to live and observe the ice. Ice is in no hurry to let us go, breakup is very late this year. It offers us a few days (weeks?) more with our friends!
