Yes, since Montreal is still in the province Québec, French is the primary language here. Unlike Québec City though, English is definitely more prevalent. We spent the night in Laval, Québec, just outside the city of Montreal. I was excited when we were able to book the Radisson here for less than it cost for the uncomfortable hostel beds in Québec City. After a little research, I found out that the Montreal Metro (subway) had a station about a mile from our hotel. We decided to take the subway into the city in lieu of our car.
Seeing a city in six hours is my opinion of a joke. Unfortunately, this is all of the time we had to see Québec City today. In our defense, Québec City was not on our original itinerary. As we got closer to Canada, it seemed to turn up everywhere as a great place to visit, so we decided that seeing a little of the city is better than seeing nothing. With a small taste of the city, we can always go back and see more.
The three of us woke up Friday with a lack of enthusiasm. You see, it was that most dreaded time of the week. You guessed it, LAUNDRY DAY! It is not that we don't like to have clean clothes, (Shawn Reece being a typical little boy would probably bathe in dirt if he could) but it always seems that laundry day falls when we have so much to see. I will stop complaining about this since, to tell the truth, we woke up this morning with quite a bit of enthusiasm.
