We went to town today, took the metro because it`s cheaper, easier, less hassles, and because we Seattleites need to verify every once in a while that mass transit is not merely some wild sci-fi idea that was touted at the 1961 World Expo.
We had lunch in a little Italian restaurant nearby and had pizza, because Montreal has great pizza. Later, we also had a couple of espresso dranks at a cafe, because it’s Montreal AND we now hail from Seattle — two good reasons. We made a detour to Le Valet d’Coeur because, duh, great game store. They now have a lot more board games and family games than RPGs, though. I looked at some French RPGs but we bought nothing because we were being good.
Mom made stuffed peppers tonight, and cream of leek, and we had a little wine.
Saturday, my sister and her family will be here to see us (they now live about 3 hours away in Lac Beauport near Quebec City.) Sunday, we’re seeing my long-time friend Christian and having lunch in Inverness; then we’re visiting my former high school director! Sister Marie-Rose Pelletier is a wonderful lady and one of the people I’ve kept in touch for over 25 years.
