My aunt and uncle arrived yesterday from Vancouver BC. They brought the girls these cute little stuffies named Sumi and Miga. Sumi and Miga are mascots of the 2010 Winter Olympics that will be held in Vancouver.
Sumi is a spirit animal. In NW Coast Indian legend a spirit animal represents the theme of transformation. Miga is a sea bear, an orca whale that transforms into a bear while on land. This character comes from NW Coast Indian legends as well.
My aunt and uncle are only visiting for a few days as they're on their way to the Danube River where they will cruise from Nuremberg, Germany to Budapest, Hungary. Today I showed them around the City Center here in Lux. We were lucky enough to see The Grand Duke of Luxembourg and all his pomp up close. My aunt thought it was the coolest thing ever.
p.s. Yes, I realize I'm off topic. Back to Paris tomorrow.
