    Vous avez dit -15° ?!

    March 4 in Canada ⋅ ☁️ -3 °C

    Vous avez dit frileuse ?! Comme disent les canadiens, il ne fait pas froid tout est une question d'équipement !! Une fois les grosses bottes fourrées chaussées, avec une bonne paire de chaussettes en laine tricotées par ma petite mamie, un bon vieux Damart, en passant par la polaire, le gros blouson acheté sur kijiji, le bonnet, les gants, c'est parti pour affronter le grand froid ! Tu comprends maintenant pourquoi il te faut un quart d'heure de plus le matin pour te préparer avant d'aller bosser !
    Fini le côté, ah non je ne sors pas car il fait froid, il neige, il pleut... tu prends ton courage à deux mains et tu files direction Montréal en lumière, un petit festival en plein air avec tout un tas de jeux, de spectacles en tout genre : l'art de se jeter de 30 mètres droit dans une piscine par -15° ! Me voilà lancée dans la folle nuit montréalaise à trouver les différents sortes de sirops d'érable en fonction de la couleur et du goût ! Et j'ai gagné une petite soupe à la courge et sirop d'érable (Tom et Riri, je vous mets au défi !), un avant goût de ce qui m'attend pour la suite dans mon premier woofing en avril dans une érablière au fin fond des bois dans la campagne québécoise !
    Et pour finir, rien de tel qu'un petit tour dans la grande roue ! Montréal mon amour !
    Je vous embrasse 🍁🐿😘

    Just for laughs festival

    July 25, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    I am writing this a day later so things may not exactly be accurate.
    After breakfast we walked around the area of the hotel to orient ourselves with the streets. Turns out our hotel is short walks to the places we want to go or just a quick ride on the metro. Glad we didn't rent a car for this portion of the trip, it would have been useless. Parking is very difficult to find.
    Back to the graffiti I was talking about yesterday. Its everywhere. Much like Regina, there are murals on many buildings, I think to discourage the graffiti, but sadly some of these also have graffiti on them.
    After figuring out the streets we walked to the Just for Laughs festival site. Turns out nothing at the site is open until later in the afternoon, so again we just walked around and got to know the place.
    Then we headed off for Old Montreal. It is a pretty cool place. Cobble stone streets, Notre Dame, lots of shops and the old port. We are going back on Saturday.
    In the evening we saw our first Just for Laughs show, The Ethnic Show, it was pretty funny. After the show we walked through the festival site again. There was much more going on and this time was quite interesting. Buskers, food trucks, an outside stage for free shows (these were in French 😔) and just things to see. We went into the Cabin of Jokes. It seats about 4 people and you get a free 5 minute comedy show.
    We took in lots on our first day. We both really appreciate the metro. I am really appreciating how people who work/live in Montreal are so accommodating with language. They are very willing to speak English. We have not run to anyone who doesn't speak both languages. Makes me think I should do a better job a learning to speak our nation's other language.

    Getting to Montreal

    July 24, 2019 in Canada ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    It was a long day of travel. Since we had to fly to Calgary to get to Montreal and most of Canada did not have clouds, I got to see the changing landscape of Canada from the sky. Pretty cool to see it all in one day - mountains, prairies and lakes and trees of Northern Ontario!
    Not too much to say. We got to our hotel around 8:00 pm. Went out for all you can eat sushi and went to sleep.
    The only picture I have is one dad took of the luggage on the bus, which took us to the metro (subway), which took us to our hotel. On the bus I noticed a lot of graffiti. A lot of graffiti. It's kind of disturbing. I'll write more about this in the next footprint.
