Un bleuet loin du fjord

Un Argentin loin de la Patagonie

(English below)

V'là un autre blogue qui a quelques points en commun avec le mien: un expatrié rendu à Waterloo qui écrit en deux langues. Je suis tombé dessus par hasard, en suivant quelques liens à partir du blogue de Joseph Facal (ce dernier est loin de l'Uruguay). Ma blonde et moi sommes donc possiblement pas les seuls fans de Mafalda dans la région! Pour les ceusses qui le savent pas, Mafalda, populaire à travers le monde, est pratiquement inconnue dans le monde anglophone (pour ne pas dire l'Anglophonie).

Ah oui, il se pourrait fort bien que je me rapproche du fjord cet automne (tout en restant relativement éloigné).

*********************

Here's another blog with a few points in common with mine: it's by some expat living in Waterloo, writing in two languages. This means my girlfriend and I may not be the only Mafalda fans in town! I just happen to stumble upon that blog following a few links from Joseph Facal's blog (Facal himself is far from Uruguay).

Oh yeah, I may be moving closer to the fjord this fall (while still being relatively far).

  • C'est vraiment un blogue frère: ça parle de nourriture, lele gars demeure à Waterloo et l'un de ses frères s'appelle Guillermo. Ah oui, et il aime les beignes.

  • Oh, thanks for the mention. I'm humbled! How did you find me? I hope you liked what you saw in there.

    Isn't it a lot of work to post everything in two languages?

  • Oh, and Mafalda rocks! I have every book and all the rest of Quino's work. Some (most) of them are in PDF format, in case you're interested... ;-)

    I think I have talked about Mafalda at least twice in my past posts.

  • The Canadian blog awards is how I stumbled upon it. I haven't read through the archive, so I may have missed any mention of Mafalda.

  • Cool, another Mafalda admirer! It's must be better in Spanish.
