We took a last minute trip up to Montreal for Memorial Day weekend.  It takes about 5 hours to get there and we faced snow squalls and fatigue on the way, but it was well worth it.  “Free museum day” sounded like a lucky break when we arrived, but it turns out it meant >3 hour waits at any museum in town.  So, instead we explored the city and stayed in a luxury hotel downtown.  The city is quite nice – there is a huge cemetery in the northern part (like, bigger than Central Park).  Max went to French Canadian doggie daycare.  Kaya ate her first croissant.  We explored the “underground city” – a series of tunnels and walkways between buildings that every northern city should have.  We saw McGill graduation day.  We got pulled over by a cop who very nicely gave us directions.  The Canadian border guard gave us a pretty hard time about Max (and his lack of rabies certificate…which we have, just not in paper form).  We saw cobblestone streets.  And ate crepes.  And chocolate.  Any many people tried to speak to us in French.  Here’s Kaya saying “Bon Appetite!”:
