From Paris to Montreal

I arrived back from holiday in France where I stayed with my girlfriend’s parent’s and friends. Still jet lagged and getting a little annoyed at waking up at 3am all the time.

One thing I love to do in France is regale our French friends at our Canadian winters. “Snow up to our eyeballs.. -25c and that’s considered warm!” And other such white lies. I sure as hell ain’t gonna convince them that we make great bread.. or better foie gras or have cheaper wine. So I gotta brag somehow.

We arrived Sunday and while it looked like Montreal, it felt more like Paris. What gives? Well at least there’s still snow on the ground.

That was Sunday. Today? The snow is pretty well gone and the temps are about spot on with Paris. So really, they have the great foie gras, the baguette with a crusty crust AND a light crumb and what do we have ?

Oh well, the good news is if it rains again tomorrow, I’ll be able to train on my bike outside.. Kinda like I did in France.
Ok, ok I’ll stop.

    Montreal is way cooler than Paris. Montreal is ugly, grimey ghetto poutine while paris is an inferno of high fashion and alienation.

    OK, I live and work in Paris, and I can tell you, Montreal is a WAAAAAAYYYYYY better to live in, people are friendlier, life is cheaper and kinder. Paris is good for visiting, not staying.

    Now, if anyone want to swap, please let me know :)
