In about half an hour I'm leaving this student ghetto in Montreal for the Four Seasons in Toronto. A friend is staying there courtesy of her work, so I can reap the benefits! It's a perfect blue sky day with a cool breeze in Montreal, making it seem all the more like a completely different country from Western Canada. Canada truly is a diverse nation - although you can travel for an instant in Europe and be in a different country, in Canada you can cross wide expanses and still be here, as much as it feels like another world!

We went and saw Powderfinger at the Cabaret on Tuesday night, (along with the entire Australian population of Montreal, perhaps) it was fantastic. Only 400 people in a tiny oldschool theatre, very intimate.

Ian left for home yesterday, which was sad. Walking home from the bus station it started to rain, which added to my melancholy mood. I arrived home to find Will, other Ian and Nadine ready to go out, so I went with them and reminded myself why it's good to travel by yourself - I got to know them all better in one night than I had living there for two weeks while ensconsed in Ian's presence. Will took us to a little diner filled with ceramic pigs, down a side street that I wouldn't have ever ventured down otherwise, where I ate Poutine, french fries with gravy and cheese curd: Quebecois traditional cuisine, for the first time. It was very yummy indeed!
