Summer Holiday Days 40-45

10 Jul

Quebec is easily my favorite province in Canada (sorry British Colombia).

Quebec City is clean,safe, and quite charming. I loved the architecture and the women there were stunning (they manage to maintain great bodies despite all the Poutine that they eat. It somehow misses their stomachs and goes to their hips. They have what I like to call “Poutine booties”).

The hostel I stayed at was super nice. L’auberge International Quebec is hands down the best as far as courteous and helpful staff, cleanliness, and proximity. It was just as nice as any McMenamin’s i have seen in Portland. They even had a pub downstairs to have drinks. I didn’t do too much to be honest, but it was just nice to tool around the city and take it all in. The ideal situation would be to live in Quebec City and train into Montreal for concerts and other events. Or maybe vice versa. I kinda dug how straight edged it seemed in comparison to Montreal.

When I was on my morning jog one morning, I took a moment to consider how far my life had taken me from the inner city of Dallas. ¬†As a child my biggest obstacle was feeling like I had no control over my life, and now as an adult I was¬†running around Quebec City, listening to Q-Tip on my headphones. 8 year old Bobby Mickey would be extremely pleased with what I’ve done for myself. I was a little sad to leave, but for now it is back to the states.

Anytime you get a chance to pay for a 40 dollar lap dance from a plain Jane white girl, who smells like garlic pizza, you gotta do it right? Right? I mean what are the odds?

Oh I’m the only one here who has wasted money at the strip club? Let’s just say it was a lot like that scenario in “Catcher in the Rye” where Holden calls a hooker up to his room and changes his mind. They have beefed up security at Club Super Sexe, that’s all I’m saying. The worst part is that I slept through the Copa America final. Definitely gotta come back to Montreal though. Luckily for me, it’s jazz Fest weekend.

Montreal is a beautiful city with some of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. The architecture is historic and interesting, and the transportation system is really well planned. It is a world class city with lots of diversity and colour. If I were to live anywhere in Canada, it would be here (of course I’d finally have to perfect my French). It is definitely the pick to click.

My top five favorite North American cities to visit are now:

1) New York

2) Portland

3) Austin

4) Toronto

5) Montreal

Honorable Mention goes to:

Minneapolis, New Orleans, and Oakland

Currently looking out over the Quebec countryside as I ride the train to Quebec City. It’s quite beautiful. Let’s see how they treat people like me who were too lazy to learn French.

Summer Holiday Days 36-38

4 Jul

Minneapolis was dope. A little too homogeneous and expensive and the cuisine was suspect.

Flying into NYC from Milwaukee lends a pretty spectacular view of the city.
