*sigh* It's good to be home, but it was also a wonderful trip and an excellent way to celebrate turning a half century. Spending 2 weeks with a former roommate, and my current roommate, in Montreal was a blast. We visited Quebec City, leaving on the day that Will and Kate arrived, saw a free performance of Cirque du Soleil and a light show of the history of Quebec City. Shopped until the credit card said "enough! are you trying to wear off my numbers?!"

Back in Montreal, we roamed the city by metro, bus and on foot. My Quebecois friend has her own radio show, one of which I "helped" her prerecord. It's a very small Christian radio station that is only on a Jewish radio station for 24 hours during Shabat. Louise was very kind to let me ruin her show. Hee hee hee. Even the station manager was having difficulty keeping a straight face with all our silliness.

Gave music lessons to a Baptist church day camp for kids who can't afford day camp. Saw a performance of the Inocenti family and their horses. Am thinking I need to go back to Montreal every summer. Now that I know how to get around better, and have figured out how to use the Opus bus card, maybe my friend can have a little break from being a tour guide.

Oh, yeah. Must be sure to go during the Montreal Jazz Fest where even the free shows are out of this world. Laila Biali was fabulous.
