Amazing what you stumble onto in cyberspace sometimes.
Last night I came across this podcast by a columnist for a local newpaper in Esquimalt, near Victoria on Vancouver Island. Items 1-8 are about the "baba" after whom a local beach on the island is affectionately known.
A rare glimpse into the Ukrainian contribution to the history of Vancouver Island. Well worth a listen.
I listened to the first (2.5 min or so) and snippets of a few others. I'd like to hear them all, so am going to download it onto my mp3 player. What a great excuse to get off my duff and start those daily walks again so I can listen while getting my exercise!
