Montreal



Montreal is a really pretty city! Today I walked about 1 1/2 miles from my hostel to 'Old Montreal' which is full of small shops and tons of cafes! I also got to see the Notre Dame Cathedral, just from the exterior since it costs $5 to go inside!!!

It is very pretty here this time of year. Definatly make a point to visit Canada sometime in the fall! All of the trees are golden orange and yellow!

Since EVERYTHING is in French though and practially everyone here speaks French it makes it hard to get around sometimes!!!

Well no, not everything is French in Montreal. There is a controversial sign language law here in Quebec called Bill 101 which forbids signs to be no other than French. However, there are lots of English institutions and Anglophones in this city including newspapers, TV/Radio, schools and others. There are also many Anglophone neighbourhoods if you go out of downtown. Cheers.
