Anne's Land

Music: "Paddy Fahy's Reel" and "The Mountain Top" by ChulruaLand of Green Gables by Wayne Curtis
The Atlantic, October 2008

"In Avonlea, I talked to a 'village resident' in a minister’s collar, who told me he was also a minister in real life and had officiated at more than 500 weddings of Japanese couples, mostly at the Anne of Green Gables Museum.
