seulement Français svp - OCT 18, 2006

It was my second trip to Canada. So I really wasn't expecting to be surprised.

 

Indeed I had been forewarned - "Quebec is a whole different place, very European!". Still. How different could Montreal really be? It was only a few miles from the US border.

 

Needless to say, I was wrong. It hit me right at Cincinnati, when I boarded my connection to Montreal. It was an American airliner, but the announcements were in French first, and English later. (Nope, they still served peanuts and soda. No croissants and brie, in case you were wondering)

 

Seriously, the whole French thing gives you that very no-longer-in-America feeling. And I am totally thankful for that. The eight odd hours that I spent in Montreal, on that rainy godforsaken day, on the streets of Old City, would have been an absolute waste, had it not been for that very feeling. I didn't get to see the city much, but I can always claim to have experienced bits of it.

I spent a week in Mont Tremblant, a nice little ski resort north of Montreal. And that's where I clicked this picture.
