Warmly booming riffs
WeShe chose a lab in Quebec city*, but we've been to Montreal a few times and loved it. Quebec is really nice (and after Barcelona soooo clean and peaceful), but there's a lot more life in Montreal. She's speculated that if a position turned up in MTL she'd be happy to live there for a year or two although for the foreseeable she's tied to a recent government scholarship connected to her current lab/research project. Lockdown was eased this summer and we went to Gaspesie (super beautiful) for a week, and have been exploring a lot of the national parks and doing some great hiking trails. Canada has impressed upon Dudette that actual changing seasons make for a stronger sense of nature being in your life, and she's really enjoying it. Spain is more loooong hot, and then some rain for a very short winter, boom, another year gone.
*She had another offer in Philly, but Trump's covid response has been a reason to be happy for the relative safety of the great white north, and more than once we've both looked at scenes in the US and been Damn, glad we came to Quebec.
Sounds grand, really. I'm definitely jealous about the nature you can explore there - always wanted to see more of Quebec. If you ever leave Quebec Ciy, I'm sure you'll back on it as an idyllic place to be, if a bit boring and xenophobic.
Yeah, I grew up appreciating the seasons as a canuck, and then left for tropical/sub-tropical places for about 8 years - nary a snowflake in sight - and since moving back to canuckistan, winter is something to endure...
Can someone translate?
What a legend - RIP to one of the GOAT Earthlings.
Duder, sorry to hear about your dad passing. Can't be easy to deal with that. Glad you've got some nice places to get lost near you. Did you end up in MTL or are you living nearby?
Yes, definitely, now you say that I'm thinking about compiling a best-of list, but I do almost all my purchases via bandcamp now and as I haven't bothered to set up a profile it's not so easy to see what I bought.
If you register an account with the same email you've been using for your purchases, it will go back and pull everything you've ever bought into your "collection". It's a bit of a trip when you first do that to go back and see all your purchases like that!
