Montreal tourism report

/ posted in: Work

I’m on day 2 of my Montreal tourist trip. The conference starts tomorow. Right now I’m actually there so I could pick up my registration and use the computer. It was really weird to walk in here and hear everyone talking in English. I’m starting to answer people in shops when they ask me questions in French. I speak the kind of French that makes people respond to me en Anglais so I don’t try to speak it too often. I took two years in high school but that was a long time ago.

So far I’ve been all over the old downtown. I went and saw Cirque Du Soleil last night. It was awesome.

Today I’ve been to the Biodome, Insectarium, and the Jardin Botanique. I had lunch at the big farmer’s market. Ok, I had crepes smothered in caramel and chocolate but I bought I lot of fruit to take to my room to make up for it!

I’m heading back tot he hotel to drop off the fruit then I’m going to a few island parks in the St. Lawrence.

I have lots of great photos which I’ll post the beginning of next week.
