Montreal World Film Festival (day 3)

Third day of my dearest Festival, and I was well rested as I rode the Métro once again to see what was up today. The past years, we had several rooms where different movies, short films and documentaries were presented simultanously.

These shoes are made for walking…

  Today I am testing my new walking shoes… Wanna come with me and stroll around Montréal a bit? I admit my neighbouhood isn’t the most exciting, but it doesn’t mean the walk will be dull.

Shower day (not international)

Just out of bed, with sticky eye corners and all. Sitting on the couch, wrapped in a blanket, thinking how good a millionaire I would be. It is grey outside. Grå. I don’t have a commun disease in Québec, drawing people to keep a close track of the upcoming weather. People here visit weather websites,…… Continue reading Shower day (not international)
