Today we learned that to walk from Atwater Metro to Ile des Soeurs takes approximately three hours, if one pokes around the Market, stops for sushi, picks up some blue stilton cheese (mmm..stinky), poke around the flower stalls, then the Warshaw, then walks through Pointe St. Charles, and eventually Verdun and onto the island. I also learned that performing such a feat while wearing flat soled Pumas gives me shin splints. Ow.
Somedays I miss living in the Maritimes with its easy-going nature and cheap cost of living. Then on days like today, I don’t.
