Well.. thanks for the positive response, Andy! :)
Way to be a total joykiller dude. Also- way to seriously generalize French-Canadians. You've obviously never been here.
Montreal's actually a really wonderful city, Heather, and I'm not saying that because it's my hometown. Yes, Montrealers are not REALLY French, but it's a different culture, and you'll be downtown, I'm sure- which is pretty much all Anglophone. You're going to have a really good time!
Beijing is really good. If you go west of Guy Concordia University, there's this place on St.Marc's and St.Catherine's called Soupes+Nouilles and it has even better Chinese food!
Montreal is the biggest party city in Canada. People don't walk home til 3:00-4:00 in the morning. And even then, there are cops everywhere. And the garlic thing? It doesn't even make sense...
