Another busy day at work today, we had to organize some integration meetings with MMP about the integrated business planning scenario before meeting with Olga in the afternoon to go through our PAM scenarios. Hopefully not too much work left to do on the Bus Prc 007 now though.

There were student protests again today, and work sent around an email in the morning to tell everyone to stay inside and not to go down to the ground floor. We couldn't see too much happening on Stanley Street from our windows except for 9 police across the street. After a bit security let us leave the building again.

Isma turned up early for our French lesson at Rio Tinto just after 5, which was good because I wanted to leave early at 7 anyway. The lesson went fairly well, we did lots of exercises and some vocabulary. After the lesson I escorted Isma downstairs then went to get changed. It was a bit of a mission getting back into the Salvation Army building as all the entrances were blocked off because of the protests during the day.

I walked back to Place Des Arts metro and met Trish there and we caught the train to Berri-UQAM. The place we were meeting Vincent, "Juliette & Chocolate", was just down the street a little bit from the metro. There were lots of police around the metro station too, not sure what was going on there.

We met Vincent who is our cousins husbands brother! Confusing much? The restaurant was very busy and we had to wait a little bit for a table. Their speciality was obviously chocolate and sweets, but they also did savory meals. Trish and I both had the ham, cheese and spinach buckwheat crepe, and "the sundae" for dessert. It had banana, strawberries, icecream, cream and broken up cookie in it, yum!

What a small world when you can meet up with people through connections in Australia in Montreal! A nice night! After dinner we headed back to the apartment on the Metro.
