The World is Burning, but Nova Scotia sure is beautiful

Danny Klein- Blog

It’s a respite to be up here, learning about oyster farming and Acadia, Syrian Chocolatiers and biodynamic winemakers.  We are two weeks into filming this Maritime Province and as I jump into the cold waters every morning or evening, I feel very lucky.

It’s a strange time to be traveling in Nova Scotia: to be posting idyllic pictures of wilderness, delicious seafood, and communities warmly accepting refugees. In fact, right now feels like a strange time to be doing anything besides reflecting, helping, tweeting, fund-raising, and protesting about our doomed climate and political system.  But like us, you probably also have a job that keeps you somewhat busy. And our’s is damn good one: to make films about people and place.

Our films won’t be available for a while, but here are some pictures of our adventures so far:

    You have taken some wonderful photos and I am sure you must be having a fascinating time.
    We are still waiting on a trip downunder- interesting times here in NZ with the general election next weekend. Lots of issues down here – the clean green NZ isn’t as clean green as our politicians like to think or have the rest of the world believe.

    Hi Daniel
    Thanks for doing this. I’m from Vancouver and enjoyed the segment you did from there as well. We belong to Otto’s salmon co op as well.we are currently in Peillon France after stopping at Slow Cheese in Bra. Before that we were in Cape Town and visited some wonderful gardens vineyards, and made a stop,at Sedgefield the first Slow Food Town in SA. This trip has freed me of the constant need ti be following what is going on in your country and it was such a joy to see all,of the enthusiastic curious folks at Slow Cheese. Italians do know how to live. WE toured the University of Gastronomic Sciences which was started by Carlo Petrini, , you may want to check it out at some point. HAve a look at their Master’s programme. They have very generous scholarships and it may be a good match for you.
