Wk 10 Postcard Weekly Challenge

Week 10 in the Darcy's Weekly Postcard Challenge, see logo in side bar, has taken us to Canada. This is the second largest country, second to Russia. There are some amazing facts and figures of this remarkable country with two main languages French and English. I was interested to read Canada is the world's largest consumer of macaroni and cheese. My postcard depicts a few of the interesting details.
The dry embossed background of snow flakes represents a large area of the country which is most if not all of the year covered in snow. The white crystal gems indicate the diamonds found in the Northern Ontario region. The 3 emerald stones, bottom right represent the emeralds found in the Yukon area. The Cree Indian chief represents the Cree Nation from northern Quebec, which is one of  many indigenous Indian tribes. The Beaver waving the national flag with the maple leaf is a national symbol. The map of Canada. The Canadian ocean to ocean railway system, is shown because if I ever won the lottery this is a trip I dream of making.
Once again, many thanks Darcy for the opportunity to visit Canada, even if it was a virtual visit, I had fun. Now of course, I am looking forward to where next we go. I have a feeling it could be somewhere in the Orient. As you have said you have had your list of countries made out in advance maybe we should have a guessing game. No prizes awarded, just for fun. Take care. Thanks to those who visit my blog who have left/or leave comments, which I greatly appreciate.
