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.
