Look Mom, We Made Friends!by Adam & Lara on 04/04/10
Unfortunately they're French Canadian.
But aside from that they're actually pretty cool. We met Pat (last name - Champagne, I shit you not) and Kim in the Bay of Islands. Since then we've all been traveling in the same direction so we can't seem to get rid of them. Their first language is French but they both speak English fluently when sober. They've been teaching us how to speak French, starting with swear words.
Pat, Lara and Kim lounge in their self-dug thermal pool at Hot Water Beach.
They drive a borrowed 1983 Honda Civic which has a hand-operated choke and a possum tail hanging from the rear view mirror.
Pat's hat is both sweet-as and filthy-as.
