Being back in Montreal this week, it occurred to me that it had been over two years since I had been there last- way too long a time to be away. As I headed up rue de la Montagne with my colleagues for dinner at da vinci at the end of a long but productive day, I blurted out to my girlfriend that one day I would live there. I don't actually know if this is true, but it was how I was feeling at that moment- connected to everything I love about Montreal (by the way, the pictured Boston cod at di vinci was fabulous). I don’t know if it’s the people, the French culture, the sexy language or the city itself, but there’s a certain charm in Montreal that I always enjoy when I am there. I had missed it. Of course there is the fabulous shopping (which I didn’t get a chance to partake of on this trip - another good reason to go back!) and the nightlife - a city where there is always a party somewhere. Canada is so lucky to have this gem and we in Toronto are so fortunate to have such a diverse and wonderful city within reach. So for now, au revoir Montreal - but I will be back soon!
