“Such is the nature of this city: windy, fishy, anecdotal, proud, weather-beaten, quirky, obliging, ornery, and fun”

St. John's Newfoundland is the largest city in the province of "Newfoundland and Labrador" and is situated at the mouth of St. John's Harbour. This city is among the oldest and most history-steeped in North America, having roots in Acadian, Scottish, Irish, Mic-Mac and Innu history.
St. John's weather is tumultuous and unpredictable at best. It ranges (on average) from 24C in summer to -20C in winter. One intersting thing of St. John's is the "white bear alerts". Polar bears ride the pack ice down from Greenland during summer and sometimes end up in the city.
Buildings and arcitecture in St. John's runs from modern hotels to old British battle forts.
