So, today I left the apartment early to experience rush hour traffic just before 9am. Didn't feel like rush hour at all to me, that's Singapore in the afternoon! I'll try again earlier tomorrow, like half past 8, as that's probably the real time I need to leave for work.
Upon arriving in the Laurier Metro station, I headed down to the office. Guess who we have for neighbors?
After leaving the office, I trolled around the area hunting for "a louer" signage. Found lots of them, but they were usually larger than what I wanted, like 4 1/2 (that's quebec lingo for a 2 bedroom partment.) and larger.
Having not much luck, I decided to head down towards the Mont Royal station, where I knew there was an A&W for an early lunch.
After lunch, I continued the areas around the Laurier and Mont Royal train stations for rental signs. I'd actually had the luck to run into a landlord putting up signs, but after viewing the apartment decided it was not for me. Granted, it was waaaay cheaper than my london apartment, but it was really quite small.
After this, I decided I was tired, and headed over to Chinatown.
In the evening, I headed out to explore Sherbrooke, which was pretty nice, then headed over to Rosemont Metro, which is inside "Little Paris". Whilst this Metro station and apartments are very close to work, to get from Rosemont to Mile End on foot requires me to take a sidewalk of a tunnel, a rather convoluted path.
Given that the winters here are cold cold cold, I want to minimize the time I spend out there, so I'll have to give Rosemont a miss.
