‘How could I have overlooked ...?’
: Quebec Reader sends in this link to a Christian Science Monitor article
on Montreal’s 19th annual African and Caribbean Film Festival and other tidbits from the city.
Says story author Stacy Teicher: “How could I have overlooked the fact that the second-largest Francophone city in the world is within driving distance of Boston?”
Says Quebec Reader: “It's so true how we Bostonians forget that there is a real jewel of a city, Montreal, within driving distance. Also, you might be interested in the French immersion programs offered by the Penobscot School. Contact info. at the end of the article.”
Says Hub Blog: How do I get a job like Teicher’s? ... OK, I’ve been French bashing a bit, but I won’t bash: A.) Paris B.) French cuisine and C.) Montreal. ... The drive to Montreal is one of the easiest, prettiest drives around (the I-93 drive, not I-89). Indeed, Hub Blog has a tentative agreement to swap apartments this summer with a French-Canadian friend -- he gets my Boston apartment for a week, I get his Montreal apartment the same week. He thinks he’s stealing me blind. Dumb French.
