Bon Jour!

Moshie Safdie's Habitat 67 - architect of the SLC Library - one of my favorite buildings
And so I am in Montreal. It is a beautiful city, even with the 40cm of snow we received today. We have eaten at some incredible restaurants where each bite of delectable food seems to make my eyes roll back in my head. We have seen Habitat 67, the Olympic Stadium, Notre-Dame de Montreal Basilica (we trekked through the snow and enjoyed the light show) and many fabulously designed hotels, restaurants, and retail stores. The poster presentation is Friday - I am very excited. The workshops at the conference are great as well. I'm just wondering if I can take home a French accent for Darren as a souvenir. It just makes me melt when the men here open a door for you and after saying "merci" they reply in that deep guttural smokers voice, "My pleasure, madam"

I have been to Montreal once and we just went to the temple and back. I would love to go into the city, I've heard it's really cool. You will have to tell me some things to see. Have fun on your trip!
