The recent news on the discovery of the identity of the unknown child in Halifax had me thinking of the impact that the Titanic has had on Nova Scotia. In a strange way, the Titanic has been a magnet for tourism far more successful than any ad campaign could ever have been. Being from North Carolina, I never even thought of visiting Nova Scotia until my desire to learn more about the Titanic story. I can't think of any other city in the world like Halifax that was turned into a destination overnight. While in Nova Scotia, I also drove the Cabot Trail. The most interesting thing I saw there besides the beautiful scenery was the oddest thing, a man had decorated mannequins and placed them in a field to look like everyday people. Also while in Nova Scotia I visited Peggys Cove and the memorial for the Swiss Air Jet that went down nearby. I was also introduced to Dulce, a stange local food that looked like dried tobacco leaves but was in fact dried seaweed. Yes, in a stange way, the Titanic has been very good to Nova Scotia.

Whatever you do Darren...don't sample the 'dulce'...!

Some years ago in Toronto, a truck driver offered me some and I unwisely gave it a try - you're supposed to chew it like tobacco...

If you want to launch your lunch and breakfast rapidly - then 'dulce' is for you.....!

But, seriously, wasn't the identification of the little Finnish lad fascinating ? Has DNA been used to resolve any other Titanic mysteries ?

Hi John, I saw in your profile that you were born on 9/11. Don't feel so bad about that as I was born on 9/10. Boy what a difference a day made last year. Anyway, I tried the dulce and it tasted like what I imagine a sardine can tastes like.
