The only issue i can't get past is that ive heard montreal is not friendly to english speaking fellows like myself.
I'd love to come see your city but i'm a little worried about finding my way around or even eating at a restaraunt.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. - dare i say that i might check out "the forum" ?
I'll leave the B's jersey at home!
Hihihi... I didn't know we had cathedrals here.... a lot of churches, but nothing comparable to what you can find in Europe. If you come here, take the time to visit Quebec too... it's the only fortified city in North America.
As for the language issues, there are NO problems with tourists. There are anglos that never learn french that manage to live their life in Montreal. Everyone is welcome here. However, don't mention you are a Republican if you are.
