Learning in Québec

My photo
I'm someone who began learning French when I was 53. I took a BA in French at 60 but wasn't happy with my level of comprehension (though I read very well). So, having really become comfortable with Spanish only by living on the Mexican border, I'm spending more time in Québec and near the border of Quebec, in Vermont, to see if I can do that here with French. I want to encourage others to do the same.

La Robe de Nations

 This is in permanent exhibit at the Museum of Civilization in Quebec City, au Musée de la Civilisation.  It's on the second floor, rather hidden, making it even more a surprise when you come up on it.

It's just pieces of fabric from clothes of women all over the world, patiently hand-stitched to hang together.

I'll look for a better description when I'm there again at the museum.  I renewed my membership, mais certainement.
