75 French Lessons

We finally make it to Québec in time to wait out a storm in Rivière-du-Loup. Along the way, we found a nice family restaurant in Pohénégamook and interviewed the owner. In listening the the video as I edited the raw footage, I heard one clear example of the difference between the French I learned at L'Institut de Français and the language of Québec. The word "an" for year is pronounced with the vowel sound in "font" as in a font of type, in the French I have learned. Here in Québec, the restaurant owner said the word with more of the vowel sound in "ant."

We fear we've overshot the foliage and plan to head south again this weekend, toward Franconia, New Hampshire. Plans subject to change.
