Montreal Part 9: To Sum Up

VIA: Delayed, as usual

Well, the final day finally came and we left kicking and screaming. We departed on a train that was supposed to leave before noon, but ended up shoving off an hour late, so we got 50% off a ticket to Montreal that is good for the next 6 months. Yay!

Bahn mi: Sandwiches to go

Before boarding, we made one last food stop at Epicerie Thien Phat to get some bahn mi for the trip. I wanted to sample all the other kinds so we got one of each: chicken, beef, and pork. The chicken and beef ones both had char-grilled meat in them, so they're quite different from the pork one that is made with a spam-like sausage. They were all delicious and spicy, but if I had to pick, I'd take the pork.

Goodbye, Montreal. Goodbye, Sophie

It was a wonderful 9 days and nights in Montreal and I'd love to do it again. We got very attached to the city as well as my sister's kitty, Sophie. Maybe next summer we'll plan a trip for the week that spans both the jazz and comedy festivals.
