Unbeknown to most people in the US, there's a bit of France here in North America. I don't mean Quebec or Louisiana, but real and true France where the Tricolor is the flag, Euro the money, the guillotine drops on necks, and a passport is necessary to visit. St. Pierre and Miquelon are two small islands just off the coast of Newfoundland and they're so French, they are actual departments of France. There's not much in either island to see. They used to depend mostly on fishing, but now they depend mainly on handouts from France. Because of their location, they give France fishing rights on the Grand Banks and may allow France to claim any oil or gas rights, which may be considerable, in the same area. True to French tradition, they have been a thorn in the side of Canada and the US for quite some time. I'm not sure why anyone would go there, but HellskitchenmanNYC and I were talking about just how French the islands were given the corrupting proximity to the Canada and the US. We know the French turn up their noses at the Quebecois, but do they do the same thing to les citoyens who live in St. Pierre? If you've ever been there, or live there now, please let us know what it was like.
