Montreal!


Unfortunately I’m not in Montreal now as is my pal Rob and Alicia, possibly pals Tom and Diane, and recently there were pals Keith and Anne, all on totally unrelated adventures.   Hey Dad – check out the Montreal Web Cam

I grew up in a small NY city of Plattsburgh, about 60 miles south of the thriving metropolitain, French Speaking, Expo Baseball playing Montreal, Quebec.   It remains one of my favorite cities because the French/English/Canadian cultural crossroads is so cool.    I think it’s the closest thing to Europe you are going to get in North America.  I used to go there often as a kid but now that the folks have moved here to Oregon it’s a bit too long of a drive.
