Canadian Pavillion, EPCOT

Posted: 2006-10-19 03:41 PM   
The last time I was in EPCOT was January of this year and only spent a few hours. I actually went just to ride Mission Space since I moved out of Orlando before it opened. I didnt stop at the Canadian Pavillion this time around, although I did pass it as I walked around the world showcase. Unfortunately, I didn't take notice of anything specific.

About EPCOT...

Posted: 2006-10-19 02:17 PM   
I used to work at Walt Disney World in Orlando (in the administrative offices) for several years and entered the parks for free on nearly a daily basis. I have visited every pavillion in the World Showcase at least once, including Canada. In fact, I dined at Le Cellier Steakhouse at the Canadian Pavillion. I had the maple salmon. Yum!

In regards to Stonehenge, during regular park hours you cannot walk up to the stones, BUT there are special tours that leave out of London which visit the park in the early morning or late evening which have special clearance and visitors can walk up and actually touch the stones. I work for a tour reservation agency in Las Vegas...and we do book this tour.

Lyla,

Thanks for your comments, I want to upload a few more pictures but with the nudity I thought I might get some unwanted comments. But this is their reality and I've tried to look past that.

Take care

Amanda

Thank you so much for reading all my tips and guides, it is really appreciated and I know sometimes time consuming.

I will get around to finishing my reports shortly so look out for those.

Have a wonderful day

Funny

... I mean the cockpit pilots and releations laughs in the pics are funny. This was just an echo of you finding the name "Saskatchewan" funny. I love indian names like "Okeechobee". There are even stranger names, how about Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg in Massachusetts. In the local Indian language it means "Englishmen at Manchaug at the Fishing Place at the Boundary" but notably mis-translated as You Fish on Your Side, I Fish on My Side, Nobody Fish in the Middle!

Languages in India

Posted: 2006-10-11 08:47 PM   
Lyla,
You are right that in the larger cities most people below 50 speak English, although not as fluently as you might think - that surprised us. All government business is done in English.

There are actually 21 official languages in India, and once we were beyond Jaipur, we found that some people spoke only their dialect and very few spoke English really well. Even deskclerks in our hotels spoke only fractured English. We were told that only 30% of Indians are literate, which accounts for the lack of English. All our guides spoke English well, but only half of them well enough to understand and answer our questions.
