Mac's journey was as much as a surprise for him as it was for
me. We have a friend of ours, called Roger, who is a violin maker.
One day Roger came round the flat to tell us that he was off to
see his brother, Ian, in Edmonton, Canada and would Mac like to
go with him. Obviously Mac flew at the chance (well, tried as
hard as any flightless bird can) and was packing his bags before
you could say 'Leopard Seal Ahoy!'
Although Roger has returned, Mac has remained in Canada travelling
and visiting Ian's friends.
Ian is an artist/illustrator/writer/anything-elser who works for
a publishing company focussing mostly on nature, this also allows
him to be a painter too. Ian has his own website where you can
find out more info and this can be found on the links page.
Mac's travels so far are documented quite nicely in an e-mail
from Ian that can be found on Mac's e-mail page and a couple of
photos in his gallery.
