Montreal: Europe without the Eurotrash.

This could also be true for the rest of Canada, we’ll have a better idea later. The first European impression is obvious: everyone’s speaking French. But it goes much deeper than just road signs and overhead conversations on the Metro. The architecture and design have apparent roots overseas, too. The biggest similarity is the people. Everyone (and by everyone, I mean about 80%,) are in shape and seem to have a sense of style about them. You just don’t see people here eating their filet mignon in last decade’s sweat suit, unless of course they’re from out of town.

I could go on, but I’m sitting in a public park stealing WiFi from a near by “linksys” and power from a municipal building. And it smells like urine. Ahh, the joys of being on lifecation!

I bet you missed going to the McCafe! McDonald’s only coffee shop. Saw that on TV again the other night.

Dude, late again! We need to know before :-) For instance, we’re going to Toronto today. What should we see?
