      @ Daniel: congratulations! Jorayn speaking people have temporary mariages
      that have to be renewed every year and that typically would happen in
      summer. Thrre wouldn't really be a honeymoon, so I suspect they would call
      the honey moon either lun da miiyel or some kind of calque.

      @Roger: Winnipeg used to have a really, really nice world class beach a
      couple hours away...and stuff is really cheap here I guess. I don't think
      it's normally any cooler here than in South Dakota in June (wikipedia seems
      to agree) but maybe I underestimate the heat in South Dakota.
