Legal Alien: A Scotsman in Montreal

Friday Fun!

An easy one first:

There is a house with four walls. Each wall faces south. There is a window in each wall. A bear walks by one of the windows. What color is the bear?

And now a hard(er) one:

Land of the giants, it is often called,
Where warriors and wizards play with wolves;
Its suns and stars get hot and cold,
Whether one is at home or on the road.
Fourteen tribes live in the west, we are told,
One less than those in the eastern world;
The weakest thirteen will give up and fold.
While the strongest continue their quest for gold.
The kings are powerful and the magic is bold,
Others can fly and are a site to behold;
But when the season is past and the story is told,
New stars are born and old tribes evolve.

What is the Land of the Giants?
