Red Echo

December 6, 2009

Arrived in Montreal – settled in at a cute little hotel, about to head out in search of dinner. I’d be enjoying this more if I hadn’t come down with a cold last night, but that’s how life goes. I’ll be here for a week of work meetings; back home Saturday evening.

First impression: all the street signs are in French! No, really – in Vancouver, everything is bilingual even though practically nobody seems to speak French, and I’d assumed the same would be true here.


  1. I’ve always heard good things about Montreal, but you need to know Candian French to get around. It’s on the list of places I want to see before I die. :-P Glad to hear you made it in safe, have a fun week!

  3. It’s a work trip. The company I’m working for is located here, and has flown in all their remote developers for a week of planning meetings (and evenings out at bars).
