Canadian Observations, and Whatnot, eh?

Right now, we’re sitting at a place called the Linux Caffee. It’s just our speed. Coffee, bagels, Radiohead on the speaker box, and a stack of programming and OS books in the corner available for public consumption. Our van (and we) slept well last night in a busy street.

The dude behind the counter is a bit hippie-ish, but not to an uncomfortable or awkward degree. Their everything bagel with butter is, quite literally, the best bagel I’ve ever had in my entire life. And the laydeez that roll through here have been cute in that dorky, nerdy, fun, unpretentious way that we all know and love.

Speaking of women, hands down, Montreal has the best looking women I’ve seen in the entire world. We were told to expect the same of Toronto, but it’s not the same.

Montreal and Toronto downtowns are both really, really clean. Montreal carries itself with it’s touch of French; proper, prim, and a perhaps a bit rigid. Toronto feels more laid back like this cafe.

Both feel safe and are places that would be easy to live in. Apartment prices seem reasonable compared to similar cities in the US.

Both cities are amazingly bike friendly, which is rad.

All in all, the Canadian cities get my vote. I have a feeling that I’m really going to like Vancouver as well.

Stay tuned for “The Montreal Story.” French cuisine, late night boozing, and how train tracks and a GPS saved the day…night.
