Montreal Madness!

June 1, 2011

Well this was certainly the most dramatic destination so far for a number of reasons. I’m going to start out by saying Montreal is a little like Vegas in terms of “What happens in Montreal, stays in Montreal! Not all of it of course. I’m starting to think that I might need a password protected…
