Where in the World is UELAC?

“Where in the World is UELAC?” Where in the world are YOU?? With your help, we hope to find out! Take a travel photo of yourself - it would be great if you were wearing UELAC gear, but not mandatory - and we'll feature it online and in an upcoming issue of Loyalist Trails.

First, put yourself in the picture with UELAC Promotional gear. Then, provide a short description of your surroundings - something historical is great, again not obligatory - and send your photo and description to Doug Grant Loyalist.Trails@uelac.org and we'll add you to our UELAC sightings gallery below.

In the meantime, browse our recent submissions below and see if you recognize the people, the places, or both. Click any photo for a larger resolution. Mouse and click the space between the square brackets to reveal the description.

Where in the World? Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Jack Twells and Ivy Trumpour, next to a cable car terminal adjacent to a medical centre in Medellin, Columbia, one of the most dangerous places in the world when Pablo Escobar leader of the notorious drug cartel had his headquarters here. The city has transformed into a modern city with transportation systems that give residents high on the hillsides access to schools, jobs and health care. In the second picture, Jack is standing at the site of the "jail" which Escobar built for himself. Next to Jack is Escobar's driver, who was on his day off when Escobar was captured and killed. He now drives a tourist bus. ]

There is a tablet above with his father and grandfather on it. The panel for Salome (MacLean) Howard UE (Vaughan's great grandmother) is across the road, about 75 feet away. She was a daughter of Archibald McLean from Fredericton, NB. Pictured are James, his sister Suzanne, their mother Betsy, and James' second cousin Allan MacLean Howard V. Allan has organized the work to update the panel. ]

This. Is. (Not.) Carthage!

Where are Calgary Branch members Ivy Trumpour and Jack Twells?

Where in the World? Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Ivy and Jack are pictured just outside the wall of the old city – and separately in the Interno Restaurant – in Cartagena, a major port on the northern coast of Colombia. The city was founded in 1533 and named after Cartagena, Spain, which in turn was named after Carthage in Tunisia. In 1984, Cartagena's colonial walled city and fortress were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Interno Restaurant, inside Cartagena's District Jail, provides training for women inmates in various trades of the restaurant business, equipping them with the necessary skills and tools to guarantee a job when they are released, to facilitate their resocialization and reconciliation with society. ]

These three ladies have almost completed the walk from the hotel to St. Andrew's United Church for the service and a lunch served afterwards by the church ladies. Then it was time for good-byes for another year. ]
