last weekend i went to montreal where i am from. i had wanted a few days in the city, traffic lights, cafes, good food and conversation. I got all this and more. saturday was spent in old montreal, the weather was beautiful melting snow filled the roads and the sun was bright. we had a healthy but delicious lunch and Veritas, we went in and out of little shops that seemed to be showering us with gifts. one of the shops Saithong, gave the kids beautiful carved pens, Merci Jan guy!. In another shop
Zone Orange gave us cupcakes to go as many as we wanted, thanks Samuel! the whole day did feel as if we where celebrating someone's birthday. I love walking down the cobblestone streets, peaking through alleys and popping into new cafes. later still we went to the ethnic market where the most beautiful lady we have ever seen turned around to my sister and i and said " wow you are beautiful" haha! honestly we could not speak for truly i think her skin was made of milk and her smile was capable of eating the sun, although i did questions her eye sight:) in the evening we prepared such a wonderful dinner filled with all our favourites and shared funny stories that involved bad driving, police and fines.
I will be going again this weekend to bring the children home( niece and nephew) and already know what places i will be visiting and dining at.
