After a 9 day business/pleasure trip to Montreal, I’m finally back and settling back into life in L.A.
I think I’d almost forgotten how to drive because I didn’t need to know how to get myself around town in Montreal. Be it the Metro, a cab, or my good ‘ol feet, road rage was the farthest thing from my mind while I was there. I certainly didn’t miss sitting in traffic while I was gone.
I did miss a few things about L.A. on my trip. I missed the hot & dry weather (it was hot and humid there… ick) and I also missed the food in L.A. I don’t know how many people told me that the food in Montreal was “so great,” and while it wasn’t bad, it wasn’t great, either. Here in L.A., you get really spoiled to the great variety of cuisine available.
I also missed the $1 bill in the U.S. (not specifically an L.A. thing, I guess). In Canada, they have C$1 and C$2 coinage (no bills), so at the end of the day we’d be emptying out piles and piles of change onto the table.
As it’s vacation season and people are going to/from L.A., I’m wondering what other people miss & don’t miss about L.A. while on vacation.
