    Day 1.212 – The Classic Hair

    Loaded with my new EOS 50D camera, voice recorder, iPod – and a slight impatience for exploring Montreal – I go for a massive multi-hour sightseeing-on-foot crusade around town after a few hours of laptop research “at home”…

    Welcome to Montreal! (Mouse on photo = text box pop-up)

    Montreal is real love at first sight. Enough said.

    Groovy Saint-Denis Street.

    After a long and exciting, home-made Tour de Montreal, I’m back on Aylmer Street. Suddenly, a voice behind me goes:

    -Heey, are you Mr. Bangsgaard?
    -Uhhh, yeah, that’s me (thinking: Who are you?)
    -I’m Julien!

    Some weeks ago I got an email from a guy, Canadian Julien, who’s been following my trip since Chile last year. Realizing I was coming his way, he recently invited me (via email) to come and stay with him and his girlfriend here in Montreal.

    -I recognized your classic hair, Julien tells me, smilingly.

    I, too, laugh out loud.

    It’s such a coincidence! Being spotted in the center of Montreal that has some 3.3 mio. inhabitants. None of us can actually believe it. We have a nice little chat in the street and decide to meet up later.
