I just got back from a weekend in Montreal.  2500 medical students from across Canada (but mostly from Ontario and Quebec) descended on the city for medgames 2007.  I think sports were played, but I wouldn’t know.  All I know is that Montreal was a fun city, with many places to drink beer and eat smoked meat.  Poutine for a 3:00 AM snack goes down really well too.

I was pleased to be able to use my French.  I wasn’t sure at first if I would be able to understand or speak enough French to have a coherent converstion.  I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to strike up a conversation with some female medical students from Sherbrooke without any problems.  They were quite pleased that I could speak French so well.  That I was able to converse in French with them is even more impressive given that I can’t even speak to girls in my own language.  Actually come to think of it, I seem to do better in French.  Hmmmm……
