We're floating around the Gulf of Saint Lawrence for today's Geo Quiz.
We're looking for a Canadian town located along the west coast of the island of Newfoundland. Early Vikings sailed this way centuries ago. Nowadays cargo ships loaded with timber and the occasional iceberg float by in the icy waters off Newfoundland's rocky coast.
Celtic music producer Brian O'Donovan is in this town with a view of the Gulf:
"I'm looking out on the Bay of Islands, the extensive coast of which was mapped by James Cook, the famous British cartographer in 1767.This city is situated at the western edge of the Long Range mountains themselves an extension of the Appalachian range This is home to one of the last paper mills in eastern Canada and as I look to my right, acres and acres, millions and millions of snow covered tree trunks await processing."
So what's a music producer doing in town known for it's paper and pulp mills? A place where people note the harsh northern conditions by saying they live on "the rock"?
We'll pay a visit to this place that's part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador in today's Global Hit....
