Just came back from visiting McGill university in Montreal. Takes about 6 hrs to drive there so me and my dad spent a night there in an old rundown motel. Its a very interesting city, with a distinct european style (more specifically French). Very much different from Toronto, like a European city in the midst of America.

The biggest difference is of course the change from English to French as the main language there. Even all the road signs and advertisement billboards are in French. I guess I really need to brush up on my French. Most people outside of my university speak French too.

It’s quite strange coz my university is situated right in the middle of downtown Montreal so within the campus, everyone speaks English but once you step out, everyone is speaking French. It’s almost like being teleported from one place to another.
