Thanks sneak.

Canada day lunch of humbolt squid, pork adobo, pan con tomate, jamon, manchego, asparagus and quail eggs, and basque cheesecake (along with a mediocre natural alberino and some vermouth and soda) at raval. Much better than a typical Friday.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Thanks, sneak. Maybe next year you can spend Canada Day in Canada to experience it yourself! Montreal is calling you!

Canada is celebrating Canada Day with a party in Montreal.  Festival International du Jazz de Montreal.   WBGO is broadcasting various acts and interviews.

In honor of the sesquicentennial Canada Day, the following exchange from last week's visit to Montreal:

 

I'm sitting at a bar.  My elbow is sticking out somewhere it shouldn't be sticking.  A waitress walks into it.

 

ME:  I'm sorry.

 

WAITRESS:  It was my fault.

 

ME:  I'm sorry anyway.

 

WAITRESS:  You sound Canadian.

I know that it's a year old, but tht sounds like a very international lunch.  Like Canada, many good influences gathering in one place.
