A friend visiting Montreal

I have been away from my blog for a few weeks. I know it is bad that I broke my New year resolutions of 2012 already, but I'm going to fix it.

A very close friend from Taiwan came to Montreal for two weeks. Before her flight arrived to Montreal, it thundered ghastly many times that morning. Obviously the weather was not good. It was her first time to visit Canada. I wanted to give her a good impression of this country so I tried my best to show her how amazing this country is. Fortunately she experienced three unexpected things in this short period.

1. She witnessed the student protests. She could hear the noise from her hotel room every night.

2. She was in Montreal when Luka Rocco Magnotta committed his horrible crime.

3. I arranged a trip for her in Toronto for one night and two days. When the shooting happened at the Eaton center, she was about to cross the street to enter the building and she heard the gun shots.

I don't know if she's been lucky or not. But I'm sure she had some stories to tell when she went back to Taiwan. Those crazy Canadians.
